    “I hope he doesn’t turn out to be a political drip, because then I will have to dedicate to him a well-known statement by Józef Piłsudski, which I will quote when it comes to such an outcome, but maybe this time they will succeed.” This is what Zbigniew Ziobro said today about Donald Tusk, in the context of the dismissal motion filed by the opposition.

    Zbigniew Ziobro, the minister of justice and the leader of Solidary Poland (SP) party, was asked if he was absolutely sure that all Law and Justice MPs would vote against the dismissal motion against him. He replied that he was always at the disposal of parliamentarians. “If you study the annals of the Polish parliamentary system, I don’t think there is a more experienced minister in this regard. I am singled out by the opposition,” he stressed.

    “I hope Donald Tusk will not turn out to be a political drip this time, since he has always turned out to be such (a person). He has always filed a motion and it came out that they brought him out on a shield, he never came out with a shield. I hope he doesn’t turn out to be a political drip, because then I will have to dedicate to him a well-known statement by Józef Piłsudski, which I will quote when it comes to such an outcome, but maybe this time they will succeed,”

    Ziobro added.

    He pointed out that he and his colleagues from Solidary Poland party are in office for Poland, not for a position, but “for an idea, for values, for sovereignty.”

    How did Tusk’s decisions affect the rise in energy and electricity prices?

    On Monday, Zbigniew Ziobro was also asked about prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s and the leader of the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party Jarosław Kaczyński’s announcement to set up a commission to investigate the predecessors’ energy policy from 2007 to 2022. He was also asked about the SP’s proposal in this matter, with particular stress on the period from 16 November 2007 to 22 September 2014, the time of the Civic Platform’s (PO) rule.

    “It is worth showing Polish citizens how the decisions of (the former – ed.) prime minister Donald Tusk influenced the increase of energy and electricity prices in Poland,”

    Ziobro said.

    “This is about the decisions that prime minister Tusk took in 2013 and 2014. He took these decisions without the approval of the Polish Sejm and Senate dominated at the time by Civic Platform, but in accordance with the recommendations of the Bundestag and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. It would be interesting to find out what criteria Donald Tusk used to line the pockets of Mr Putin and German industry as well,”

    he stressed.

    Dangerous connections of Civic Platform’s politicians

    According to Ziobro, the links of Polish politicians with Putin, Gazprom and the promotion of “energy policies that served the interests of Moscow and Berlin” should be analysed. As he pointed out, Donald Tusk and Ewa Kopacz took ‘key decisions with Putin and Merkel in mind’, i.e., “deciding to move away from coal to gas”.

    “Especially as it was obvious that this would lead in the future to aggression, war and the invasion of Ukraine because such were the plans of Putin’s Russian doctrine and imperial policy known to all and sundry,”

    Ziobro pointed out.

    Ziobro asked whether it would be possible to combine the idea of the Law and Justice party regarding the establishment of the commission with the idea presented on Sunday by Solidary Poland MPs, who opted for the establishment of an investigative commission, he replied: “we will discuss it”.

    “We have a common goal. I think we will find a way out of this situation so as to clarify these important matters optimally,”

    declared Zbigniew Ziobro.
