The guest of “Fakty po Faktach” was the mayor of Warsaw, Rafał Trzaskowski. – I wanted to thank everyone who was on the march. Really huge crowds, a million people, fantastic atmosphere, full mobilization. I keep saying we’re going to elections in two weeks, but we are also heading towards a completely new Poland. Open, democratic, European, diverse – he said.

– That’s why I’m so happy that the atmosphere at this march showed that Poles expect such a Poland – he added. – On this occasion, I would also like to thank all the services, because Warsaw is now cleaned up, passable, everything was done in literally a few hours – he said, when asked about what the city looked like after the march.

The Mayor of Warsaw was also asked about the capital city hall’s calculations regarding the attendance at the march. – We had very accurate calculations and we presented them. Over a million people attended this march, exactly as we announced. I am very happy about it and I would also like to thank you very much for this mobilization – he replied.

Trzaskowski: people are surprised that PiS is only conducting a negative campaign

At the Law and Justice convention in Katowice, both the president of PiS and the deputy prime minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, as well as Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, in their speeches focused mainly on Donald Tusk and criticism of his actions. Kaczyński said that “the point is to prevent Tusk’s system from returning to Poland,” and the point of this system was to ensure that those who “started to rob our country after 1989 have the right to continue to rob.” The head of government called the PO leader “Angela Merkel’s political husband” and presented “Tusk’s portfolio.”

Rafał Trzaskowski commented on the ruling party’s election campaign. – People are surprised that PiS is only conducting a negative campaign. They actually stopped promising anything and presenting any vision of Poland. They only try to harass, insult, use lies and manipulation. They change Donald Tusk’s name all the time. They don’t offer anything, he said.

– We are talking about the future. We also have 100 points, 100 priorities for the next 100 days when the opposition manages to win. We also have plans for the next months and years. Because we are talking about the future. We are talking about education and health care. We are talking about relations with the European Union. We talk about inflation and prices and how to deal with it. About what really worries Polish women and men, he continued.

– This is where we differ (from those in power – ed.). We are talking about the future. They only look back at what happened. We try to evoke these good emotions. Just like today on this march. And they only try to excite the bad emotions. I believe that if someone builds an election campaign only on bad emotions, he or she must lose, he added.
