Presidential Minister Andrzej Dera – Monika Olejnik’s guest in Monday’s edition of “Kropka nad i” on TVN24 – commented on President Andrzej Duda’s decision to entrust Mateusz Morawiecki with the mission of forming a government.
The opposition announces a coalition agreement. Dera: they’re still talking
Dera said that “it cannot be questioned” that “Law and Justice obtained the best election result, has the most MPs and has the right to have the opportunity to form a coalition.” – Prime Minister Morawiecki made such an announcement to the president and the president took advantage of this right – he said.
To the attention that representatives of other groups do not want to agree to enter into a coalition with Mateusz MorawieckiDera replied that the opposition’s announcements “are just announcements for now.”
In turn, commenting on the announcement of the head of PO Donald Tusk about the We will know the coalition agreement by Friday, Dera repeated that “these are announcements.” “We’ll wait and see,” he said.
When asked what Mateusz Morawiecki announced and what the prime minister said to the president during the consultations, Dera said that “it is not important today what he said or didn’t say.” – He informed the president that he was ready to undertake such a mission, he had the right as a representative of the group that won in these elections undertake this mission, he argued.
– There will be a session of the Sejm next week. At this meeting, in accordance with the law, Prime Minister Morawiecki must resign. If he does not form a cabinet within this time, then the second step takes place and then the Sejm presents a candidate – he described.
He also maintained that representatives of KO, Left and Third Way “have not reached an agreement yet, they are still talking.” – If the representatives of the current opposition reach an agreement in the Sejm, sign an agreement and there is a coalition, it is known that Prime Minister Morawiecki will not form this government – he added.
Dera: let’s allow all these talks, let’s allow the coalition to be formed
During the conversation, Dera was asked about Mateusz Morawiecki’s interview for Interia, in which the Prime Minister admitted, among other things, that he would see himself in the government of Prime Minister Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz. – I think it was a proposal of the type that (Mateusz Morawiecki) is even willing to have a representative of PSL. That’s how I perceived it, commented the presidential minister.
– It is important that a coalition is formed, because today no one has the opportunity to form a government on their own, and coalition talks have taken place earlier in history. I remember those times myself and how difficult conversations were, and even more difficult then governing. Let’s allow all these talks, let’s allow the coalition to be formed, he concluded.
“MP Marek Sawicki knew and agreed to it”
In the interview, Monika Olejnik also asked why Marek Sawicki was elected senior marshal by the president. – There are several very important premises. First of all, he is the longest-serving parliamentarian, he is a calm, balanced MP, replied Dera.
– In my opinion, this is a very good candidate for senior marshal, whose task is to lead to the election of a real marshal – he said. – It is an honorary title in order to properly elect the authorities of the Sejm – he added.
When asked whether Sawicki learned about this decision from the speech, Dera replied that he “thought there was a conversation about it.” – This was one of the names that was mentioned in the media, saying that it was possible, because there were several names. I think that MP Marek Sawicki knew and agreed to this, he said.
