The deputy speaker of the Sejm and the head of the PiS parliamentary club was a guest on radio Jedynka. As he assessed, the past year was indeed a very difficult year. At the same time, he added that he looks at the new one with hope and optimism. In Terlecki’s opinion, the most important emotional issue – also in PiS – were different approaches to fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
Terlecki was asked if “the greatest success of the current team is the fact that it survived and still – despite significant drops in the polls – is the leader of trust”. He replied: “the drops are not that big, and – to be honest – we internally, but also in our conversations, we resist this notion of» we survived «, because that was not our goal”. – There were moments in the past year that we were on the verge of unsteadiness, but such disbelief that all of us – that is, of course, Poles – would lead to some extraordinary, dangerous, critical solutions, etc. – he added.
According to him, in the following quarters of last year, various threats appeared, “there were indeed a lot of them”. – We do not want to continue, but our program was changes and what hurt us the most was that these changes could not be planned, carried out as we wanted, because various obstacles made it difficult for us – he said.
When asked if the vision of the collapse of the United Right was realistic, and if so – how far it was removed – he replied: whether in such a situation it will not be necessary to decide on early elections “. – It cost us a lot to keep the majority, because we were losing our image on various occasions, but luckily we made it and I hope that this year will be calmer – he stressed.
When asked if it was a bit embarrassing and embarrassing that the government had been accused of “selling stools,” he noted that “it was indeed a bit embarrassing and embarrassing, but that is unfortunately normal political practice.”
– This is not our invention, it is not a Polish invention, it happens in all parliaments and it happened many times before 2015 – he said. – Unfortunately, it is so in politics that you sometimes have to grit your teeth and make unpopular, uncomfortable and unpleasant decisions. That’s right, sometimes the situation requires it, and it was like that in the year that passed – he said.
The most important problem was that the pandemic, which – said Terlecki – still evokes great emotions, also caused “great emotions” in the PiS club. – There were supporters of tightening the regulations, the rules of functioning in a pandemic, forcing vaccinations, and there were those who said it was an attack on freedom. Our policy has been a bit of maneuvering between these two opinions, and this has often generated enormous emotions within our party. In a sense, they are still going on, but I think that we have adopted such a course of balancing between these two extreme opinions – he said.
The politician also stressed that the budget for 2022 was adopted and “the transition from the old to the new year has been successful”. “We are safe in this regard, so we look calmer now,” he added.
Terlecki said that he expected that “the turbulences that we had to deal with in the parliamentary club and in our environment, our party (…) will expire and that we will no longer have to say:” the most important thing is to survive “, and it was such voices fell, “he said.
