On Tuesday afternoon, another meeting of the leaders of the United Right will be held on the new coalition agreement and the reconstruction of the government.
Terlecki told journalists in the Sejm that it would be the fourth round of coalition talks. “They won’t last forever, and we can’t delay reconstruction decisions indefinitely,” he said. – However, our coalition partners must come to an agreement with us, and we do not want to create fait accompli, of course, but it also cannot be the case that this reconstruction will be postponed without some reasonable decisions on their part – said the head of the PiS club.
Asked what the problem was and what is now a “bone of contention”, he replied: “We are talking mainly about two issues in the future agreement to be signed: it is the question of the division or shape of the government after the reconstruction, and the question of the electoral lists in future parliamentary elections. “.
When asked what would happen if the coalition partners ran out of sense, he replied: “Then we’ll see.”
The head of PiS, Jarosław Kaczyński, asked by the weekly “Sieci” what exactly the shape of the government should be after the changes, replied that the talks were underway. – We have 37 departments of government administration, thematic areas that need to be reorganized substantially and politically. The next stage will be a concrete conversation about who will be responsible for what. I hope that we will communicate quickly, but it may take some time. It does not depend only on me – emphasized the PiS leader.
Government spokesman Piotr Müller, asked on Monday in RDC whether this week the public would learn more details about what the new cabinet of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will look like, replied that according to the announcements, the changes will take place at the turn of September and October. “There is therefore also no time pressure for it to have to be this week. But of course I think it is important for all parties to these discussions to end these talks. Create a modified government, consolidate at least a few ministries and actually move on. to achieve all the program goals we talked about before, “Müller said.
The reconstruction of the government is connected with a new coalition agreement: PiS, Solidarna Polska and the Understanding, which concerns not only the question of appointment, but also program matters. Until now, the coalition agreement was in force until the presidential election.
In an interview with PAP in early August, the PiS president announced that the government would be reconstructed in September or at the very beginning of October. As he added, the plan assumes reducing the number of ministries to 12, and the coalition partners from Solidarna Polska and the Understanding would receive one ministerial portfolio each. – With such a number of ministries, it simply results from ordinary arithmetic, and this is treated in such a way – one could say – generously for our coalition partners – he stressed.
According to PAP information, after one of the earlier meetings of the leaders of the United Right, the number of ministries that will remain after the government’s reconstruction was tentatively accepted by all parties. Last week, the government spokesman noted that there are no final decisions on the shape of the government yet. However, he emphasized that the maximum number of ministries after the reconstruction will be 14 or 15. There are 20 ministries in the current government of Mateusz Morawiecki.
