Reflecting on Poland’s recent celebration of the 105th anniversary of regaining independence on November 11, Morawiecki underscored the enduring significance of preserving and respecting the hard-fought independence.
During his address, Morawiecki reminded the assembled MPs of their collective commitment to guard Poland’s sovereignty. He emphasized that as parliamentarians, their duty is to actively protect and uphold the nation’s independence. The call to action resonated with the historical context of Poland’s struggle for autonomy, reinforcing the imperative for the newly constituted parliament to prioritize the defense of the country’s sovereignty.
