People with disabilities and their carers are protesting in the Sejm, demanding an increase in the social pension. On Monday, some of them are to talk to the deputy minister of family and social policy, Paweł Wdówik. – The Sejm will meet only in the second half of April. I don’t know if these people are going to stay here for a month, commented the head of the PiS club, Deputy Speaker of the Sejm, Ryszard Terlecki.

A protest of carers of adults with disabilities and their charges is underway in the Sejm. They submitted civic draft law on social pensionj, which assumes the payment of such a pension in the amount of the lowest national salary, i.e. PLN 3,490. The social pension is indexed annually and from 1 March this year it increased to PLN 1,588.44 gross. The protesters demand that the bill be considered at the next meeting.

TVN24 reporter Jan Piotrowski spoke with one of the participants of the protest on Monday at Wiejska street. – I believe we are in the same place as we were last Monday [w dniu rozpoczęcia protestu – przyp. red.]. None of the ruling decision-makers came to talk to us, only Minister Wdówik was there, who invited us for talks. Today, the delegation is going to the minister at 4 p.m. for talks on increasing the social pension to the lowest national one, she said.

Protest in the Sejm. Terlecki comments

The reporter also asked the deputy marshal of the Sejm and the head of the Law and Justice club about the case Ryszard Terlecki. – Talks should revolve around this problem, which we are constantly conducting, and not such performances in the hall of the Sejm – he said.

When asked if the Sejm would speed up work on the proposal to increase the social pension, Terlecki replied that “there is no such news yet” and “the Sejm will meet only in the second half of April [12, 13 i 14 kwietnia – red.]”. – Well, I don’t know if these people are still going to camp here for a month. It’s hard to say – said the head of the club PIS.
