Kaczyński failed to turn Warsaw into Budapest - Polish politician Czech
Polish politician Mirosław Czech noted that the anti-Ukrainian tilt in Poland was not successful
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"As a result of a record turnout, the Polish opposition won the elections. Over 74% of Poles came to the polls. It should be noted that people aged 30-59 were extremely active. People felt that the stakes in this election were extremely high. We are talking about the future of Poland in the EU, the future of Polish democracy. Jarosław Kaczyński once said that we would turn Warsaw into Budapest, but he failed to do so. Warsaw remains Warsaw, as one of the capitals of the EU, a member of NATO and the entire united democratic Europe. And this is a huge achievement of Polish society," Czech emphasized.
According to the Polish politician, anti-Ukrainian sentiments will disappear in Poland after the elections.
"We should note the loss of the pro-Russian political force. This anti-Ukrainian tilt was not successful. The majority of Polish society did not like anti-Ukrainian sentiments. There is a chance that after the election campaign, these anti-Ukrainian notes will disappear. The times when Ukraine thought of Poland as a strategic partner will be back," Czech emphasized.
According to a poll of voters at the exit of polling stations on October 15, five parties and blocs passed the threshold to enter the Sejm in the Polish parliamentary elections.
The Third Way bloc, which is ranked third according to preliminary results of the parliamentary elections in Poland, has stated that it excludes the possibility of forming a coalition with the ruling Law and Justice party.
According to the latest data, the election turnout is 74%, which is the highest since the fall of communism in the country.
