“The bill is OK, but …”. Kukiz submits an amendment – Media

“I hope the Sejm will vote” for “our amendment, which EXCLUDES the possibility of” nationalization “of private media, wrote Kukiz’15 leader Paweł Kukiz in social media.

Paweł Kukiz got acquainted with the bill, commonly known as anti-TVN, and assessed that “it is generally OK”.

Such regulations have existed for years, for example in Germany, Austria and France – those “foreigners” may have a maximum of only 20 percent “- notes the politician.

However, Kukiz’s concern was raised by the fact that the act does not prevent the purchase of private media shares by state-owned companies, so the possibility of their “nationalization” is not blocked.

In order to avoid this danger, we are submitting an amendment, the content and justification of which are presented below. I hope that the Seym will vote “for” our amendment, which EXCLUDES the possibility of “nationalization” of private media. However, if this amendment is not passed, it will be difficult for me to support the entire bill“- wrote Kukiz.

He wants to add the provisions that “shares or stocks in a company with direct or indirect participation of foreign persons, disposed of in connection with the fulfillment of the adjustment obligation referred to in paragraph 1, may not be taken over for sale or acquired by the State Treasury, a company carrying out a public mission within the meaning of art.2 point 8 of the Act of 16 December 2016 on the principles of managing state property (Journal of Laws of 2020, item 735 and of 2021, items 159 and 255), a state person legal within the meaning of Art. 3 (1-3) of this Act and a company with direct or indirect State Treasury participation “

A legal act performed in breach of the prohibition referred to in para. 2 would be invalid.

In justifying the introduction of these amendments, Kukiz adds that they are intended to ensure that “the treasure the state will not become a beneficiary of the changes introduced in the Broadcasting Act of December 29, 1992 “.
