I would like our civil servants to earn even more. I would like them to receive even more decent remuneration – said Mateusz Morawiecki. The Prime Minister was asked about the most numerous government in the Third Polish Republic and the high costs of operating his office.

Mateusz Morawiecki was asked at a conference in Wołomin whether the slogan “work humility and moderation” is still valid. It is in the context – as the TVN24 reporter Artur Molęda enumerated – that so many ministers and deputy ministers have not yet been in the government, the costs of the prime minister’s office are “gigantic”, and in addition “over the last eight years salaries have gone up by 40 percent”.

– Yes, ladies and gentlemen, of course, moderation and humility – he replied. – Well, for eight years inflation that’s just above 40 percent. So it was an attempt to create the impression that there are very high increases, whether in the law firm or in the budget. I would like our civil servants to earn even more. I would like them to receive even more decent wages. Therefore, the increases that have taken place, first of all, correspond more or less to the level of inflation – he said.

Commenting on the number of people employed in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, Morawiecki claimed that “the Chancellery of the Prime Minister included several other units in terms of organization”.

– If we compare the law firm now to the one from eight or nine years ago, it is like comparing apples with pears, because today’s law firm not only does much more cases, has many more responsibilities, but also functionally incorporated other organizational units and hence it is manipulated calling from time to time by our dear opposition these various numbers on the side of employees employed in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister – he argued.

When in April 2023 the president appointed new ministers to the Morawiecki government (Robert Telus replaced Henryk Kowalczyk as the minister of agriculture and rural development, and Janusz Cieszyński the Prime Minister himself as the Minister of Digitization – the Polish government became the most numerous cabinet in the history of the Third Republic, i.e. after 1989. Together with secretaries and undersecretaries of state (commonly called deputy ministers), the government consisted of 112 people in all ministries and in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister.

When is the regulation on Kaczyński’s duties in the government?

The head of the government was also asked when the regulation will be published, which will specify the tasks in the government of the deputy prime minister, the head of PiS Jaroslaw Kaczynski. He did not answer it directly. – Of course, in general, this is a very cross-cutting action of translating the Law and Justice program into government realities, here and now, as soon as possible, consistently – he stated.

– That is, acceleration of agency, also in this period when we have very little time between government bills adopted by the government and those adopted by the parliament. The head of the entire political camp, and at the same time the parliamentary base subordinated to him, is able to coordinate the pace of work in the field of government projects that go to the Sejm, voted (are) in the Sejm, work in committees and so on in a much better way, he described further.

To repeat the question when the regulation on Kaczyński’s duties and his duties as deputy prime minister will be published, Morawiecki replied: – The regulation will be published soon, but work is already underway as it should be.
