Marcin Mastalerek argued that Andrzej Duda “is not delaying anything” when it comes to nominating his candidate for prime minister. In the context of PiS gaining a majority in the Sejm, the head of the president’s office said that “everything is possible.”
Marcin Mastalerek in Polsat News denied that Andrzej Duda is delaying the nomination of a candidate for prime minister. The head of the president’s office emphasized that he understands the perspective of the media, including social media, but “it is the other way around.” – The president acts at the usual pace, in accordance with the constitution, he does not delay anything. Respecting the perspective of an accelerating world, the president has perfect timing, assured Mastalerek.
Andrzej Duda will not shorten the term of office of the old Sejm. He will take steps according to plan and time
The head of the head of state’s office noted that Duda mentioned this to the election committees, which took part in consultations at the Presidential Palace for two days. – He honestly said that he would not shorten the term of office of the old Sejm, that nothing extraordinary was happening for the previous term to be shortened, and he would take steps calmly, according to plan and time – said Mastalerek.
The head of Duda’s cabinet also answered the question about what the head of state was thinking about. Mastalerek cited, among others: to Szymon Hołownia’s words that the parties do not have a coalition agreement yet and “have not reached an agreement on program issues.” The head of the president’s office said that “it is not a matter of faith” whether Mateusz Morawiecki will manage to gather enough MPs to have a majority.

Mastalerek recalled the year 2005, when everything indicated that the government coalition would be formed by the Civic Platform and Law and Justice. – Everything is possible in Polish politics, that’s what I’ve learned – said Duda’s head of office. Mastelerek summed up that he was in the Sejm and saw votes that were supposed to be both won and lost. – I have seen various things, I know the history of Polish politics – he concluded.
