Marcin Kierwiński about his speech

In a conversation with a TVN24 reporter, the minister explained that in the square where the celebrations took place, “there was a terrible echo from the microphone.” – There was probably a hardware error, which caused a bad effect – said Kierwiński, apologizing for the situation.

Comments appeared on the Internet questioning the minister's sobriety. – Any insinuations are one big scandal – he said. He added that he did not rule out “taking legal action” after “carefully reviewing some of the entries.”

Kierwiński said that “it is natural that (opponents) will try to build their political narrative on this lie.” – After all, this is one big lie. If a minister were to be dismissed because he had a problem with the sound system during his speech, many people in Polish history would have to be dismissed. In this case, the technology failed, the sound system failed, and any attempts to add untrue things to it are simply shameful, he maintained.

When asked by a TVN24 reporter whether he would be willing to undergo a breathalyzer test to prove that he was sober at the time, Kierwiński replied that “he has no objections, but he will not do it because it makes no sense.” The minister justified that he was a “serious man” and “would never come to this type of celebration under the influence of alcohol.”

Kierwiński publishes a breathalyzer test

Kierwiński, however, went to the police station, where he was breathalyzed. “Before you pass judgment, listen to my statements that I gave to the media after the speech. Moreover, I immediately went to the police station, where I was breathalyzer tested. Result = 0.0 (per mille – ed.)” – he wrote on the X platform (formerly Twitter ).

He repeated that “what happened at the celebrations was due to technical issues and reverberation.”
