“I hope that within 2-3 weeks we will reach a programme agreement with Law and Justice (PiS),” Jarosław Sachajko, MP from Kukiz’15-Direct Democracy said. He announced that the final version of the anti-corruption bill, as well as the draft laws on hemp and medical cannabis have so far been agreed.
Talks between Law and Justice (PiS), the senior party of Poland’s ruling coalition, and the opposition Kukiz’15 party on mutual support for initiatives important to both parties have been going on for many months. As Jarosław Sachajko, MP from Kukiz’15 said, the negotiations are starting to bear fruit.
Mr Sachajko announced that the final version of the anti-corruption bill, as well as the draft laws on hemp and medical cannabis has so far been agreed. Talks are also underway regarding the new electoral law submitted by PiS in 2006, which assumed the introduction of 230 single-member districts and 16 voivodeship districts in the elections to the Sejm – Poland’s parliament’s Lower House.
“After the vote on the ratification of the European Union’s own resources, talks with Law and Justice accelerated, so I hope that within 2-3 weeks we will have the entire programme agreement on mutual support for bills,” he said.
When asked what PiS’s proposals were, Mr. Sachajko replied that a meeting was to be held this week, where the demands of the other party would be presented.
“We will hear how they perceive this agreement,” Mr. Sachajko stated.
This week, Paweł Kukiz, the leader of Kukiz’15 and his associates are to meet with PiS representatives to learn about the assumptions of the “New Polish Order”. Mr Kukiz wants to include his pro-civic postulates, such as introducing a mixed electoral system, digitising the process of collecting signatures for a civic economic initiative and the issue of justice of the peace, in the flagship socio-economic programme to be presented by PiS.
