Left and KO prepared a motion to dismiss the minister
The Civil Coalition and the Left Clubs prepared a motion of no-confidence against Minister Ba’achak, according to the statement of the heads of the two clubs. Boris Budka and Krzysztof Gawkowski.
– The dress has changed. Minister Błaszczak’s behavior yesterday, how he ran away from a committee meeting where he was supposed to give clarifications on what was happening in the Polish public space and the omissions of the Minister of National Defense, only confirmed our belief that the motion is a vote of mistrust in the Minister of National Defense and the Vice President of Ministers Mariusz Puschatak are essential.
According to the President of the KO Club, the Minister of Defense must have two basic qualities: honor and courage. – It turned out that Mariusz Puszczak, who attacked the Polish generals and lied about them, was a man without courage, who could not take responsibility for mistakes and simply got rid of him. And yesterday it turned out that he is a man without honor. He ran away from the House, said Boudka, and ran away from a committee meeting because he was afraid to face very uncomfortable questions.
He added that this is why members of the KO organization and the left jointly prepared a motion for Błaszczak’s dismissal. – We will show it to other opposition groups, hoping that the signatures of our friends from the opposition will be under this application. We hope that the House of Representatives will deal with this proposal soon – said the KO club president.
The President of the Left Club stated that “no one will feel safe in Poland as long as Mr. Błaszczak is the Minister of National Defence”. – Bargaining, deceit, misleading and lack of honor for the man who wants to manage Polish armyit is simply an insurmountable defect – Gawkowski added.
According to him, during Thursday’s meeting of the Defense Committee, the minister proved that “what he can do is escape from the battlefield.” “He would have escaped in the same way if the war had started,” Zhukovsky said.
He also said nothing NATO country It wasn’t like missing a missile that had come from an enemy country and not being found for months. – Minister Błaszczak is a disgrace to the soldier’s and officer’s uniform. Zhukowski said that as long as he was in command of the army, there would be more and more conflicts, there would be no cooperation, and the Polish army would claim to have a real president.
According to him, because Puschatak “blamed” his subordinates, “he is a laughing stock who cannot say: ‘I’m sorry’.”
Boris Budka told PAP that since the authors of the application relied on the signatures of representatives of other opposition clubs and circles, it was not certain that the application would be submitted on Friday. But he added that it will happen in the near future.
Rocket near Bydgoszcz
At the end of April, the Minister of Justice announced on Twitter that the Public Prosecutor’s Office had initiated proceedings regarding the remains of an aerial object found in a forest near Bydgoszcz.

On May 11, the head of the Ministry of National Defense stated that “the procedures and response mechanisms in the case of an object found near Bydgoszcz are working properly up to the level of the operational commander.” The operational commander of the armed forces’ types, General Tomasz Piotrowski, was accused of not informing him or the relevant services about the missile, which entered Polish airspace. According to the Minister, in the report of December 16, which he received from the COD, there was information that on that day “no violation or transit of the airspace of the Republic of Poland was recorded, which – as it turned out later – was incorrect.” He added that any personnel decisions would be taken after consultation with the President.
