We are currently submitting a presidential draft law with salary increases for teachers in the Sejm, but without 3 billion PLN for the illegally taken over public television – conveyed to the media by the head of the Office of the President of the Republic of Poland, Grażyna Ignaczak-Bandych.
On Saturday evening, the president decided to veto the budget-related law for 2024, which included 3 billion PLN for public media. There can be no consent to this due to the blatant violation of the Constitution and the principles of a democratic rule of law – he justified. As he stated, after the holidays, he will submit his own draft to the Sejm, concerning, among other things, salary increases for teachers and other expenditures planned in the budget-related law.
Ignaczak-Bandych told the media today that a representative of the chancellery is currently submitting the presidential draft law with salary increases for teachers to the Sejm, but without 3 billion PLN for the illegally taken over public television.
On Saturday, Prime Minister Donald Tusk, referring to the president’s announcement on the X platform, wrote that the veto “takes money away from preschool and beginner teachers, while lifting the ‘chimney tax,’ allowing unlimited raises for state-owned company and agency presidents.”
President Andrzej Duda responded to him.
