The most important thing is that declarations are made on both opposing sides within the Agreement that this dispute does not threaten the stability of the United Right in any way, emphasized Deputy Minister of Culture Jarosław Sellin.
On Saturday, the deputy head of the Ministry of Culture was a guest of Krzysztof Ziemiec on the RMF FM radio. During the conversation, Jarosław Sellin became, among others when asked about a conflict in the Covenant. – What is happening (in the Agreement) is not entirely clear to me. I would prefer there was no such situation, said the Deputy Minister of Culture.
– The United Right is a broad formation formally composed of three political parties, including the Agreement. We have been working well together in the last few years. I think it is for the benefit of Poland. And I trust it will be so, said Sellin.
He pointed out that declarations were made on both sides within the Agreement that this dispute does not endanger the coalition in any way. – The most important thing is that there are declarations that this internal dispute in no way translates into the stability of the United Right – he emphasized.
When asked about the words of Adam Bielan, Sellin said that “Jarosław Gowin was furious”, said that “these are emotions”. – It shows clearly. We don’t want to be judges in this case. I am talking about the Law and Justice community, because I am a member of Law and Justice. We wish our friends, colleagues from the Covenant, that these internal matters and this dispute will be cleared up somehow, that they will return to cooperation – he said.
On the other hand, when asked if Jarosław Gowin is still the leader of the Alliance, he replied that “this party was generally referred to as the Jarosław Gowin Alliance”. – It seems that despite this internal dispute, the majority of the parliamentary representation still claims that Jarosław Gowin is the leader of this community. If the Coalition Council meets, then – as far as I know – Jarosław Gowin will be invited, he said.
– The most important thing is that the representatives of all three parties that make up the United Right in parliament form one club. Parliamentary club of Law and Justice. And it will remain so, he added.
Kidawa-Błońska: A trial time for Gowin
I hope that Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Gowin will not allow additional “tributes” to be imposed on the media; it is a time of trial for him, it can show that he has character – said Małgorzata Kidawa-Błońska (KO) Deputy Speaker of the Sejm on Saturday when asked about Gowin’s position on the proposed advertising tax.
At the beginning of February, a bill was entered into the list of government legislative works, the consequence of which will be the introduction of a premium for Internet and conventional advertising. According to the assumptions, the proceeds from the contributions are to be transferred to the National Health Fund, as well as to the National Monument Protection Fund and the newly created Fund for Supporting Culture and National Heritage in the Media Area. A significant part of private media on Wednesday protested against the proposal in the joint action “Media without a choice”.
The Deputy Speaker of the Sejm on Radio ZET was asked about the position of Jarosław Gowin’s Agreement, which on Friday said that he did not see any possibility of supporting this project in the shape currently proposed. According to the party, the enactment of such legislation would result in “even deeper discrimination of the national media in relation to global entities”. At the same time, the group declared its readiness to start work on the act which “actually taxes media technology corporations operating on the Polish and EU market”.
According to Kidawa-Błońska, the proposed tax is “to delete all media except the public media.” As she assessed, the Covenant statement is a “good signal”. – Jarosław Gowin has surprised me many times and I hope that this time, for a good cause, he will also surprise me and will not allow this act and taxation or additional levies to be imposed on the media. I believe it is possible and this is a trial time for him. It can show that it has character and that it weighs matters good for Poland – she said.
In her opinion, Gowin said something that was not “convenient” to PiS chairman Jarosław Kaczyński. – This complicates the beautiful picture that Jaroslaw Kaczynski wanted to have that the entire United Right speaks with one voice – argued the PO politician.
Crisis in the Agreement
The Presidium of the Agreement Board decided to suspend eight members, including Jacek Żalka, Zbigniew Gryglas, Michał Cieślak and Włodzimierz Tomaszewski and asked for their expulsion from the party. The reason – as the party’s deputy spokesman Jan Strzeżek said – is “repeated violations of the party’s statute”.
