Gasiuk-Pihowicz: these are the first steps we have taken towards the rule of law
Kamila Gasiuk-Pihowicz was the first to speak. – The MP, myself and two more of our colleagues, i.e. four representatives of the Sejm, were elected to the National Council of the Judiciary in accordance with the constitution. In a moment, two more Senate members will be elected, and in a moment there will also be another new member of the National Council of the Judiciary, i.e. the Minister of Justice, and these are the first steps we are taking towards the rule of law, with more to come, she said.
As she said, “we are in a difficult situation” because “thanks to the gift given by President Andrzej Duda, the current government is still governed by “people who hate democracy, who have done everything to destroy the independence of the justice system and still have institutions with which they can either make it difficult for us or , or prevent this process of repairing the rule of law.
The MP was asked about the ideas and plans of the parliamentary majority to restore the rule of law in Poland. – To be deadly serious, I cannot afford the risk of revealing our intentions step by step due to the fact that we have people on the other side who may take subversive actions – she replied.

Tomasz Zimoch also commented on the matter. – It has never happened before that members of the National Council of the Judiciary were elected so quickly in the first hours of the new term of office of the Sejm.

– As I know Szymon Hołownia – I do not know the details of this conversation, it lasted over an hour – I am convinced that Professor Strzembosz gave many good, wise tips. If I know Szymon Hołownia, his entire office is back on its feet. The office is headed by an outstanding lawyer, the brain of the future of Polish politics and the rule of law, Stanisław Zakrzyczymski, said Zimoch.
– I am convinced that talks with outstanding experts are ongoing – he added.
