The Sejm passed a vote of confidence in Prime Minister Morawiecki's government

The motion for a vote of confidence in the government was President Andrzej Duda's idea. - I made a proposal to end and cut this process, in which de facto the government and the parliamentary majority are being obstructed in their actions that are supposed to lead to the end of the coronavirus epidemic, creation of conditions that are completely safe for the life and health of Poles, as well as conditions to efficiently and consistently fight the effects of the economic crisis," the president argued. Prime Minister Morawiecki justified the vote with the need to cut through the festival of brawls and say: Check.

- What do Poles need today? First of all, efficiency and justice, so that our actions have a real impact on the health and economic reality. Poles need stability and action for the good of the Republic of Poland," said the Prime Minister from the parliamentary platform.

Morawiecki stressed that five years ago the door to good change was opened by President Andrzej Duda. -The change was implemented under the new economic and social policy. First by the cabinet of Prime Minister Beata Szydło, and later continued by me and the government that is here with us. Today, in the situation surrounding us, when Europe is slowly emerging from a health crisis and entering an economic crisis, we need unity between the executive and legislative branches - argued the head of government.


According to the Prime Minister, Poland has achieved great success in the fight against coronavirus. We made the right decisions at the right time. We were one of the first in Europe to introduce restrictions and thanks to quick decisions we did not find ourselves in a situation of Italy or Spain, where doctors had to decide which patients to treat. During an epidemic, we reacted quickly. We quickly closed borders and schools. We restricted mass events. This is the art of making the right decisions at the right time. - The fact that we have not run out of hospital beds is an effective policy of our government and Minister Ł. Szumowski - convinced Morawiecki.
