Apoloniusz Tajner can be sure that he will become a member of parliament on behalf of the Civic Coalition. The former president of the Polish Ski Association admitted that during numerous meetings in various places in Poland he encountered aggression from Law and Justice voters. He also revealed what he will focus on in his new role.
People best associate Apoloniusz Tajner with the famous “Małyszomania”, which began at the beginning of the 21st century. It was then that the famous coach trained and promoted one of the best and most famous Polish ski jumpers in history, Adam Małysz, who years later replaced him as the president of the Polish Association Ski resort. Today, the 69-year-old only acts as an expert in television studios before and after ski jumping competitions, and he is also politically active.
Apoloniusz Tajner suffered aggression from PiS voters
The former Nordic combined skier started from the list in Bielsko-Biała and is almost certain that he will become a new member of parliament on behalf of the Civic Coalition. In an interview with “Przegląd Sportowy Onet” he revealed what he would like to do most of all when elected. – There will probably be some disruptions now, so we don’t know how it will turn out, and until the government and commissions are formed, there is no action. I focus on children and youth sports in the sports commission, local governments and small and medium-sized entrepreneurs. I will be active here – admitted the former president of PZN.
At the same time, he added that entering the world of politics was not easy for him. There are a few things he doesn’t like and he noted that this is one big fight. Moreover, he experienced unpleasant situations, as during meetings in numerous cities, towns and villages he suffered aggression from Law and Justice voters.
– Over the last few weeks, I have been traveling around cities, towns and villages, talking to people and it seems that the turnout may reach 70-75 percent. And I also sensed that most people expected change. However, I was surprised by the aggression and rudeness I faced when I met a supporter of the ruling party, regardless of gender. I found out that it can be an aggressive world. This also needs to be changed, freedom and normality restored. Although I will say it again, it will all probably take time, added Apoloniusz Tajner.
