Schetyna: Hołownia knows that he will not build a party by pulling people out of the opposition parties

Grzegorz Schetyna was asked on TVN24 if he was “afraid of throwing the net” by the leader of Poland 2050 Szymon Hołownia for the members of the Civic Coalition.

Szymon Hołownia realizes that he will not build a party by drawing people from other opposition parties; I understand that he wants to have his circle in the Sejm, but I do not think that is his method of building Poland’s political strength in 2050 – said Grzegorz Schetyna (KO).

According to Schetyna, “all parties of the democratic opposition, including parliamentary ones, but also those outside the parliament” are “doomed to a certain kind of cooperation”.

– I do not think it was a method and I am convinced that Szymon Hołownia is aware of it. After all, he will not build a political party by drawing or taking over people from other opposition parties. This is not the way to build your party, said the former leader of the Civic Platform.

As he added, he understands that Hołownia wants to have a circle in the Sejm. – I can understand it for political reasons, but I do not think that this is his method of building Poland’s political strength by 2050, because it is a road to nowhere, that is, changing, dividing opposition parties that are doomed to cooperate, not to compete, to fight between himself – said Schetyna.

On Thursday, the Polish 2050 press conference was to be held, at which – according to the invitation sent to the media – Szymon Hołownia, Michał Kobosko and MP Hanna Gill-Piątek were to present “new people joining Poland 2050”. On Wednesday morning, the media also reported that Paulina Hennig-Kloska, an MP associated with Nowoczesna, would join Poland in 2050.

However, the conference was canceled. The deputy head of Poland 2050, Michał Kobosko, explained the decision to cancel the conference with “the progress of changes in the political situation in the country in connection with the discussion on free media”.

Meanwhile, Paulina Hennig-Kloska appeared in the Sejm on Thursday at a joint briefing with PO MEP Andrzej Halicki, where she criticized the government’s plans to introduce a tax on advertising, against which a large part of private media protested on Wednesday. When asked about joining the Hołownia movement, she replied: “As you can see, I am a member of Nowoczesna and a club of the Civic Coalition” – pointing to a mask with the logo of her party.

Szymon Hołownia and his associates have been trying to create a circle in the Sejm for several months. So far, they have managed to persuade two MPs to cooperate: Hanna Gil-Piątek (formerly Lewica) and Joanna Mucha (KO), as well as KO senator Jacek Bury. However, this is still not enough to register a group of deputies, which, according to the rules of the Sejm, must include at least three deputies.
