We will run for the Senate together, and this is the first step to govern together – informed MP Krzysztof Gawkowski, head of the Left club, on TVN24. He answered questions about specific names and their possible candidacies. He stated that when it comes to personal details, “Easter will close the matter”.
On Tuesday, politicians of four opposition groups: Civic Platform, Coalition of Poland – PSLPoland 2050 and the Left, as well as the Self-Government Movement “Yes! For Poland” are to sign a declaration of concluding the so-called Senate Pact for the upcoming elections.
Krzysztof Gawkowski, the head of the Left Caucus, spoke on TVN24 about the Senate pact. “It’s time to stop all the dancing around the common list,” he said.
Referring to the long-term formulation of this pact, he said that “in politics, if you don’t know what it’s about, it’s about names, people, and personal details.” – This is the hardest part of any agreement. There is an agreement, there will be a conference, it is already known that we will run for the Senate together, and this is the first step to govern together. This is also a sign that if we reached an agreement with the Senate, we will govern together after the elections – said Gawkowski.
Questions about names
Konrad Piasecki, who conducted the conversation, asked the head of the Left club about who would be on the joint opposition list for the Senate.
Roman Giertych? – I don’t know if it will. He’s neither my matchmaker nor my brother, but I do know one thing. For agreement and communication in the electoral pact, no one will disturb anyone. If the PO reports someone, the Left will not interfere. But we also expect this on the left. If the Left proposes a candidate, no one interferes with it either, Gawkowski replied.
Jan Maria Jackowski? – I heard that he wants to run and that talks are underway with one of the smaller coalition partners to support him – revealed the MP of the Left.
Adam Bodnar? – It is being considered very seriously, he said.
Gabriela Morawska-Stanecka? – The Left will never trip anyone who was once in the Left – emphasized Gawkowski.
He added that when it comes to personalities, “Easter will close the matter” and “in the weeks after Christmas, names will start to emerge.”
