The head of the office of the President of the Republic of Poland, Paweł Szrot, commented on the idea of adopting a resolution by the Sejm, which would be a response to the shocking words of Manfred Weber. – The president also believes that such external interference in our internal politics, in our electoral affairs should not take place – said Szrot.
Let us recall: on Monday, August 7, the chairman of the European People’s Party, Manfred Weber, gave an interview to the German television station ZDF, in which shocking words were said.
PiS will submit a draft resolution to the Sejm?
Weber attacked our country’s government. He stated that for his party Law and Justice is an “enemy” that “will be fought”. In his opinion, politicians of the ruling party “systematically attack the rule of law and free media.”
There have been reports that in response to these words, PiS will submit a draft resolution to the Sejm next week, which condemns external interference in the election process. On Thursday, August 10, this was confirmed by MP Radosław Fogiel.
– We’re thinking about it. The Sejm should speak out on important matters, and the announcement of interference in the elections, and not only in the elections, because it is an expression of the desire to influence the policy of another country by a politician of a neighboring country, in this case Germany, is scandalous – commented Fogiel in the “Graffiti” program on Polsat TV.
“External interference should not take place”
The matter of the planned resolution was also referred to by the head of the office of the President of the Republic of Poland, Paweł Szrot, who on the same day was a guest in the broadcast “Signals of the Day” on the First Program of Polish Radio.
– In such situations, the president has always indicated that he respects the autonomy of the lower house of parliament. If the Sejm passes such a resolution, the president will certainly respect it. On the other hand, the president also believes that such external interference in our internal politics, in our electoral affairs should not take place, said Szrot.
“Poles are sensitive to issues”
He emphasized that Weber’s words are not only unacceptable, but also evoke the worst associations in the history of Polish-German relations.
– Mr. Weber should read some history books to find out why Poles are sensitive to issues and why they don’t like it so much. This type of rhetoric, the use of such specific words from the mouth of a German politician, has its meaning in Poland. Chairman Weber should think a few times before using exactly such words – added Szrot.
