    Kaczynski Comments on Morawiecki’s Confidence Vote Loss

    Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the leader of Poland’s Law and Justice (PiS) party, downplayed the recent loss of power after eight years, following Mateusz Morawiecki’s cabinet failing a vote of confidence within just two weeks.

    The critical moment unfolded on Monday when Morawiecki faced a vote of confidence in the Sejm, the lower house of the Polish parliament, resulting in a 266-190 defeat.

    Kaczynski addressed the media before the vote on Donald Tusk, the leader of the opposition coalition, who was poised to become the next prime minister. Responding to questions about his sentiments regarding PiS losing power, Kaczynski asserted, “This is politics; there is nothing extraordinary about it. Governments change.”

    He continued to express his scepticism about the future, stating, “Now the only question is what this change will involve. From the announcements, it will look like the end of Polish democracy, but we hope that this will not be the case.”

    Highlighting his vision for the country, Kaczynski emphasized, “The Poland of my dreams is a Poland without politicians who would work on behalf of foreign countries.”


    Poles Barred from German Camp Liberation Commemoration

    German authorities have prohibited Polish representatives from commemorating the liberation anniversary of the KL Ravensbrück concentration camp. Last year's incident involving the National Armed Forces Union delegation echoes this latest controversy.
