Surprisingly warm words of the future Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Affairs Krzysztof Gawkowski towards his predecessors from the building at ul. Królewska.
Although not directly, the future Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Affairs, Krzysztof Gawkowski, spoke quite warmly about his predecessors from the ministry he will take over. Apart from Michał Boni, who was the first to hold this function during the PO government, no names were mentioned, but we can guess who the Left MP had in mind.
Gawkowski: Something was actually happening in the ministry
Krzysztof Gawkowski spoke about his role in the government of Donald Tusk, who will most likely be sworn in on December 13 in Rozmowa Piaseckiego on TVN24. The future minister spoke surprisingly warmly about what was happening in the ministry during the PiS era. Although he did not say it directly, he appreciated the actions of Anna Streżyńska, Marek Zagórski, and Janusz Cieszyński.
– This is one of the areas of the country where the authorities have been passing the baton to each other for years. Michał Boni created the ministry and was successful, PiS led to something actually happening in the ministry, but now there is a milestone ahead of us. Digitization will enter the lives of each of us more and more strongly through automation, robotization, artificial intelligence, data, computerization, smart city – said Krzysztof Gawkowski. He also indicated what, in his opinion, will be a big task in the new term.
– Citizens must know that the state takes care of their digital hygiene. Just as I know today that I have to wash my hands when entering the house, I would like digital hygiene to be just as important – added.
The MP and future minister also reminded that at the beginning an audit of public finances would be necessary, which would have to be carried out in each ministry.
– I would certainly like to conduct an audit in my ministry to see where we are in terms of both finances and personnel. The same will probably happen at the Chancellery of the Prime Minister. We, as the Left, encourage the Prime Minister to create, and I believe that he will, a White Book of Public Finances. This year, and no later than in January, when the budget will be adopted, there was full information about where the money was, who was taking it out, and what the state of the budget in Poland was. This can be done in six weeks – he said.
