Everything will probably be decided by who will be third in the election box, said Bronisław Komorowski in “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24, commenting on the autumn parliamentary elections. The former president said that “some people think that it is enough to win with PiS”. “Well, I don’t think so,” he added.
Ex-president Bronislaw Komorowski on Thursday in “Fakty po Faktach” he admitted that in October elections “He will certainly vote for the democratic opposition, because he pins his hopes on removing Law and Justice from power.”
He added that common sense tells him that even a possible victory of the Civic Coalition “will not decide everything”. In his opinion, “everything will probably be decided by who will be third in the election box, because only winning on this point, i.e. the third place taken by the democratic opposition party, creates a chance, in my opinion, to postpone PiS from power and creating a majority coalition.
– I wish the Third Way all the best, but I also wish the Civic Platform to win as many electoral points as possible – he added.
Komorowski, when asked what is at stake in these elections, said that “some people think that it is enough to win with PiS”. – Well, I don’t think so, because it could be a Pyrrhic victory. That is, not only at a great price, but also those that will not bring resolution. In my opinion, winning over PiS means creating an alternative government by the current democratic opposition. This cannot be done only with the success of the Civic Platform or the Civic Coalition. However, it is extremely important – said the former president.
“The government doesn’t care what the outcome of this referendum will be”
Bronisław Komorowski was also asked why the governing referendum, which is to be held on election day, is needed. Thursday the resolution was adopted by the Sejm. – In my opinion, only because of the willingness (…) to spend money on a referendum during the election campaign. In other words, the referendum will be a substitute for a fragment of the election campaign of Law and Justice – he said.
At the same time, he stated that “the authorities do not care what the outcome of this referendum will be.” “It doesn’t matter to them at all,” he added. He said that in the context of the referendum, the rulers care “only and exclusively about electoral associations”. – This means that it will be an element of leveraging their idea for the election campaign – he assessed. Asked if he would take part in the referendum himself, he replied: – I will do everything not to take part in it.
