    Kaczyński Defends Glapiński: They Seek His Removal to Introduce Euro

    Jarosław Kaczyński, leader of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party, vehemently defended Adam Glapiński, the President of the National Bank of Poland (NBP), during a recent convention in Radzyń Podlaski. Kaczyński accused opponents of attempting to remove Glapiński from his position in order to pave the way for the adoption of the euro, disregarding Poland’s constitutional commitment to the złoty.

    Inflation and Economic Policy

    Kaczyński praised Glapiński’s policies for keeping inflation close to the target rate, asserting that any changes could lead to a drastic increase in inflation and a decline in living standards. He emphasized the importance of the central bank’s independence, warning that compromising it could have severe consequences for Poland’s economy.

    The PiS leader argued that maintaining the złoty is crucial for Poland’s economic sovereignty and resilience against external shocks. He criticized the idea of adopting the euro, citing its detrimental effects on Polish households and emphasizing the government’s commitment to defending the national currency.

    Political Motivations and Allegations

    Kaczyński accused the opposition of using Glapiński’s potential removal to further their agenda of introducing the euro, disregarding both constitutional principles and the interests of Polish citizens. He warned against the repercussions of such actions and stressed the government’s responsibility to uphold Poland’s economic autonomy.
