After the National Election Commission announced the official election results, parliamentary reporters met the head of the PiS club, Ryszard Terlecki, in the corridor. They asked him about the consequences of PiS losing its majority in the new Sejm.
– You have already become bold – said the Deputy Speaker of the Sejm when he met reporters. – You were the ones who limited our activities. Now we will ask questions to politicians – said the TVN reporter. “Now it will be free everywhere,” Ryszard Terlecki said ironically.
– Will Jarosław Kaczyński still be the president of PiS? Should there be a change after PiS’s defeat? – asked a reporter from Wirtualna Polska. The head of the PiS club did not respond – Would you like to say something to PiS voters after this result? – Ryszard Terlecki apparently did not want to answer this question either.
