Paweł Kukiz announced that he will talk to President Andrzej Duda about when the draft law on justices of the peace will be submitted to the Sejm. This is one of the flagship projects of Kukiz’15. The party concluded a political agreement with PiS. – As far as I know, this law is ready and I want to talk about whether we will already refer it to the Sejm – said Kukiz.
On Friday, the Sejm passed the so-called “anti-corruption law” prepared by Kukiz’15 MPs and supported by PiS as part of a political agreement concluded between both parties at the turn of May and June.
Asked about further cooperation with Law and Justice after its conclusion in mid-June this year political agreement, Kukiz repliedthat he hopes that one of his flagship projects will soon appear in the Sejm. – I will talk to President Andrzej Duda about the draft law introducing the institution of justices of the peace, which is being prepared by the presidential team led by professor Piotr Kruszyński, co-author of the white book and our bill – he said.
– As far as I know, this law is ready and I want to talk about whether we will already refer it to the Sejm – he added.
According to the project’s assumptions, justices of the peace could adjudicate in minor criminal and misdemeanor cases. They would be elected once for a six-year term in general elections, and after its completion they could take the judge’s, barrister’s, prosecutor’s or legal adviser’s examination without the requirement to complete an apprenticeship.
Team for amending the electoral law
Kukiz also said that he would like to meet with MPs who have declared their participation in the work of the team for amending the electoral law before the next Sejm session, which is scheduled for September 29-30. Its creation was also one of the points of the agreement with Law and Justice. The team was signed by: Kazimierz Smoliński, Anna Milczanowska and Bartłomiej Wróblewski from PiS, Krzysztof Paszyk from PSL, Michał Gramatyka from Poland 2050, Michał Wypij from Agreements as well as Agnieszka Ścigaj and Paweł Szramka from Polish Affairs.
The team would discuss various formulas for changing the electoral law in order – as Paweł Kukiz said – “to develop a law that would lead the state out of the party law, which would oblige a citizen to form a herd if he wants to run for the Seym”.
