We are one step away from shaking hands with Poland 2050 and announcing that we are going to the elections together. This will happen in the coming hours – said Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, president of PSL, on TVN24.
Wladyslaw Kosiniak-Kamysz was a guest of “Piasecki’s Conversation”. He was asked, among other things, about the agreement with Poland 2050. – There is a good chance that the coming hours will bring very positive information – he said.
– It’s a matter of hours, not days. The final versions of the agreement still need to be approved. We are one step away from shaking hands and announcing that we are going to the elections together. This will happen in the coming hours, he announced.
As he said, talks with Poland 2050 “first were about the program, and then political.” It’s a normal discussion. The time we spent on this discussion was not wasted. We agreed on more things than I first thought. It is necessary to agree on who will perform certain functions in the election committee, how this committee will be structured, what about precinct electoral commissions, he enumerated.
He added that it was “many, also technical, things.” “I don’t think anyone is as prepared for the election as we are at this stage,” he said.
Kosiniak-Kamysz: we will start as a coalition
Kosiniak-Kamysz announced that together with Poland 2050 they would start as a coalition, i.e. to get to the Sejm, they would have to exceed the electoral threshold of 8 percent. – We said from the beginning that everyone also wants to maintain the subjectivity of their party – he said.
When asked if he was concerned about a score below the threshold, he replied: PSL in the last elections, going from his own committee, he reached 8.5 percent in very difficult conditions, when our political competitors, led by PiS they wanted to eliminate us from public life.
He stressed that “until the end we will try to make this result as good as possible”. – As we look at today polls at the level of 14-15 percent without announcing the start, it gives a certain dose of optimism that this result will be even better. I always look up, not down. The glass is half full, he said.
