    The Political Charade Unveiled: From Urging to Insulting – the Duda Dilemma

    Estimated reading time: 1 minute

    In a perplexing turn of events, Polish President Andrzej Duda’s recent decision to pardon Mariusz Kamiński and Maciej Wąsik has left him facing a barrage of criticism from his own political allies. The same voices that once encouraged Duda to take this step are now shamelessly disparaging him, labeling him the “partner of criminals” and accusing him of defending colleagues and pardoning a pedophile.

    Grzegorz Wszołek, in “Gazeta Polska Codziennie,” highlights the hypocrisy of these attacks. He points out that just weeks ago, politicians from the opposition, including Donald Tusk, were emphasizing that the president held the key to the lives and well-being of the imprisoned PiS politicians. Now, when Duda has acted as per their suggestions, they denounce him with claims of being “pathetic” and having “completely compromised” himself.

    This political theater exposes the deceptive tactics employed in escalating the temperature of the ongoing political dispute – a game where urging turns into insulting when the tables are turned.
