If the president says “yes” to the will of citizens, he will say “yes” to in vitro – said Paweł Kowal (Civic Coalition) MP in “Fakty po Faktach”, when asked about what President Andrzej Duda will do with the bill passed by the Sejm on Wednesday about in vitro if it reaches his desk. – There is only one way out here, one wise way out, one sensible way out. And the solution is to sign this act – said Mirosław Suchoń, head of the Poland 2050 – Third Way parliamentary club.
On Wednesday evening, the Sejm adopted an amendment to the act on financing in vitro from the state budget. The clubs of the Civic Coalition, Polski 2050-TD, PSL-TD and the Left fully supported the act. In turn, all Confederation MPs voted against. Club PIS divided during the vote: there were 23 votes for the act, 102 against, 49 abstentions.
If the bill is accepted by the Senate or the Sejm rejects its possible objection, it will go to the president’s desk.
Suchoń: there is only one way out
The matter was commented on in “Fakty po Faktach” by Mirosław Suchoń, head of the Poland 2050 – Third Way parliamentary club. – I am convinced that the president, who declares himself the president of all citizens, has no other choice (than signing the bill – editor). This is something, it is a symbol of good change, real, good change in parliament – he said.
– There is only one way out here, one wise way out, one sensible way out. And the solution is to sign this act. It is not without reason that the Speaker (of the Sejm, Szymon – ed.) Hołownia, decided to restore all civic projects for consideration by the Sejm. And it is not without reason that Marshal Hołownia decided that the first project, a symbolic project, would be the in vitro project – he continued.
– Yesterday was great joy, great happiness. We restore hope. And I think this is the most important message. If the president wants to take away hope, he will not sign it. But I am convinced that the president also wants to maintain this hope among Poles, he added.
Kowal: if the president says “yes” to the will of citizens, he will say “yes” to in vitro
Paweł Kowal (Civic Coalition), head of the parliamentary foreign affairs committee, also spoke on this topic. – If the president says “yes” to the will of citizens, he will say “yes” to in vitro. I hope he will do so, he said. He also referred to the words of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, who he told journalists on Tuesday in the Sejm that he has always supported the in vitro method.
– Prime Minister Morawiecki now says things like that, that he opted for everything that he did not do and that he fought with. Yesterday, this was visible once again in the Sejm – he said, adding that the Prime Minister “is fooling around when it comes to appointing a government” and “is mocking one of the most important institutions in the country, the Council of Ministers”.
– He is now able to say everything, and we have to comment on it for more than a month, because that is how long the operation he is conducting with the president called “14-day government” lasts. This is a very frivolous precedent, it is bad treatment of Poland and Poles, it is against the interests of Poland’s security, said Paweł Kowal.
Mirosław Suchoń added that Mateusz Morawiecki “he will say anything to be noticed and recorded.” – In fact, we should all lower the veil of silence, because it is absolutely categorically unacceptable what he is doing – he said.
Suchoń: we will not appoint any members to the “lex Tusk” commission
On Wednesday The Sejm dismissed all members the “lex Tusk” commission established by the previous majority, i.e. the State Commission for investigating Russian influence on the internal security of the Republic of Poland in the years 2007-2022. However, the announcements made by members of the current majority coalition indicate that the commission itself will not be liquidated.
Robert Kropiwnicki from the Civic Coalition said in a conversation with a TVN24 reporter that “it is a strange creation, but like any creation, when used sensibly, it can begin to operate in accordance with the regulations.”
– Poland 2050’s position here is very clear and clear: this commission is outside the constitution. As long as it is possible to pass a law, signed by the president, which will abolish this commission, we will make it happen. And until then, we will certainly not appoint any members to this commission, declared Mirosław Suchoń.
Kowal: examining Russian influence in a wise way is the duty of Polish politicians
Paweł Kowal also commented on the statement of the Civic Coalition politician. – I know one thing, that there is a topic. I see that just before February 24, 2022 (the date of full-scale aggression Russia to Ukraine – ed.), and I am deadly serious and more and more data shows this, there was a great influence of Russia on Polish politics and various things, for example, worried me – he said.
– I was worried about how the issue of transporting (Ukrainian – ed.) grain through Poland was messed up, a very similar story to today’s situation with transport companies. (…) There were Russian influences in Poland. Even more so in Poland than in many Western countries. And examining these influences in a wise way is the duty of Polish politicians who care about the Polish raison d’état, he continued.
