Sunday was marked by the election campaign for many politicians. Politicians from PiS and the Polish People’s Party fought for the votes of the rural electorate. The President of PiS, the Commissioner for Agriculture and the Minister of Agriculture took part in the harvest festival in the Łódź Voivodeship. In turn, PSL organized a national harvest festival in Płock.
The presence of the president of PiS, the commissioner for agriculture and the minister of agriculture at the Sunday harvest festival in the Łódź Voivodeship shows that the pre-election battle for the countryside is underway. All significant parties know well that the rural electorate may be crucial in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
In Płock, the leader of the group Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz and the head of Poland 2050 Szymon Hołownia spoke at the National Harvest Festival of the Polish People’s Party. – We will not win these elections until we recapture the Polish countryside – said Kosiniak-Kamysz
The fight for the countryside for both PiS and PSL has been much more difficult for several days, since the appearance of the leader of Agrounia on the lists of the Civic Coalition, because Michał Kołodziejczak and Donald Tusk have one goal in common. – To win together against PiS and we will win against PiS. I promise you that and I will do everything to make it so – said Kołodziejczak after announcing the start from the KO list.
The right side immediately reacted to the presence of the leader of Agrounia on the lists of the Civic Coalition. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki published a video on social media in which he spoke in strong words about Kołodziejczak and reminded of the situation from many years ago during one of the protests.
Michał Kołodziejczak responded to the film with a request to recall President Kaczyński’s statement to the “Russian brothers”, a reminder of the volume of Russian coal imports, a reminder of the lack of compensation for farmers for the embargo and assured that Agrounia would survive the “PiS attack”.
Thanks to the president of PiS
Deputy Minister of Agriculture Janusz Kowalski, who used to fight with Kołodziejczak, visits dairies, visits fields and contests of farmer’s housewives’ associations, which is also an element of the fight for the countryside. It’s just that Kowalski appears in the countryside, and Kołodziejczak is a farmer, and it was he who pointed out to the minister unresolved problems with grain and soft fruit, he protested before and in the ministry.
During the Sunday harvest festival, Robert Telus did not mention that the problem with grain started a year ago and he himself replaced the minister who argued that grain would not get cheaper. He thanked the president of PiS for this. – Thank you, Prime Minister, for the decision you made together with Prime Minister Morawiecki on April 15 to stop the flow of grain to Poland – said Telus.
However, on Sunday, the president of the Polish People’s Party did not spare words of criticism towards the minister of agriculture. Among other things, he pointed out a video in which Robert Telus showed how he solves problems with Ukrainian grain. – Polish countryside and agriculture expect a government and a minister of agriculture that will not waste fire extinguishers – said Kosiniak-Kamysz.
The Third Way also presented its plans for the countryside, including stopping uncontrolled imports of products from Ukraine and compensating farmers.
