Duda: Tusk will not be my prime minister
President Andrzej Duda he gave an interview to the weekly “Sieci”, the entirety of which will be published in Monday’s edition. As we read on the weekly’s website, the interview was titled: “Tusk will not be my prime minister.” And it was these words that the candidate of KO, Third Way and Left for the head of government referred to in his entry.
In the fragment published on Sunday, Duda referred to his decision to entrust the mission of forming a government to the Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
He explained that “representatives of the Civic Coalition, the Left and Third Way did not convince him that it is worth giving up the good parliamentary tradition, according to which the victorious group is the first to be given the mission of forming a government.” – Under the current constitution, all presidents, including my predecessors, Presidents Kwaśniewski, Kaczyński and Komorowski, have always entrusted the mission of forming a government to the winning party. This year elections Law and Justice won, he said.
The president said that during consultations with coalition representatives he wanted to “see a common and uniform program” and hear as many specifics as possible. – This was missing – he added.
– Secondly, on very important, fundamental issues during these talks, representatives of individual political camps, which today declared the formation of a coalition, said completely different things. For example, regarding key issues relating to Poland’s sovereignty, he said.
The current democratic opposition can count on 248 out of 460 seats in the new Sejm, and PIS – on 194.
