Mateusz Morawiecki, Member of Parliament and former Prime Minister of Poland, expressed his willingness to enter the competition for the leadership of the Law and Justice (PiS) party once its current leader, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, steps down.
In an interview with the private broadcaster Radio ZET on Friday, Morawiecki stated his desire to assume the leadership of PiS when Kaczynski eventually retires.
“While I would prefer the current leader to remain at the helm of PiS for as long as possible because he is the one who unites our party,” Morawiecki remarked, “I would also like to participate in this honorable race.”
Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who co-founded PiS with his late twin brother Lech in 2001, has long held a dominant position within the socially conservative party.
Responding to inquiries about a potential run in the 2025 presidential election, Morawiecki indicated that such a decision would be made by the PiS political committee approximately 10 months from now.
