Poland’s standard of living at European level was promoted at Sunday’s congress by Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Jaroslaw Kaczynski, Chairman of the ruling Justice and Justice Party (PiS).
The president of the PiS emphasized in his speech at the conference: four months in the next 21 months there is an election campaign in Poland. This suggests that, in addition to the October local elections, the elections to the European Parliament will be due in May next year, followed by the Polish parliamentary elections in autumn 2019 and the presidential election in 2020.
Kaczynski spoke of Poland’s internal and external attacks aimed at expelling Polish reforms, which “completely ignore the facts”.
In relation to the elections to the European Parliament, he stressed that Poles want to live in the European Union, inter alia, to “achieve equality with Western Europe in terms of living standards”. The Poles also know that “they have to bear the burdens that the Western partners did not carry during the course of history”, the President of PiS added.
Mateusz Morawiecki, who spoke at the end of the congress, pointed to European cohesion, saying that his government meant “raising the standard of living of the Poles to the Western European level” rather than “blinding and blind obedience to Brussels”.
He added: PiS insists on Europe. “Anyone who is frightening from leaving the European Union is a threat to Poland,” he said, urging “Poland to be sovereign within Europe”, and the Poles, as well as the other nations, will preserve their identity.

Among other things, the program includes 4 billion zloty (304 billion forints) for the introduction of broadband in 20,000 schools and small villages, renovating rural rail and bus stations, restarting bus services that have been canceled in previous years, and supporting energy-saving insulation of apartments.
