Brawl in the TVN24 studio. It didn’t end with one intervention
Let us recall that PiS, despite the best result in 2023 parliamentary elections out of all the electoral committees, it did not obtain the majority required to form a parliamentary majority government. Therefore, the democratic opposition (KO, Third Way and Left) is to take over the government. On Friday, the leaders of the opposition parties signed a coalition agreement, which has been negotiated over recent weeks.

The topic of post-election decisions appeared in the program “Kawa na ławę” by Konrad Piasecki on TVN24. The guests in the studio were: Barbara Nowacka from KO, Agnieszka Dziemianowicz-Bąk from the Left, Małgorzata Paprocka from the Chancellery of the President, Marcin Horała from PiS, Michał Kamiński from Trzecia Droga and Stanisław Tyszka from Konfederacja.
The latter referred to the coalition agreement, declaring assistance in the implementation of one of its provisions. — The Confederation will help you fulfill this promise. We will submit projects simplifying and reducing taxes in this regard, he said, referring to reducing the tax burden imposed on working people.
— I would like to ask you whether you respect the election results from a month ago. I am talking about restoring the lawful functioning of the Sejm. In your opinion, does the group that received 1.5 million votes of support, i.e. Confederation, deserve to participate on equal rights in the work of the Sejm Presidium? – Tyszka asked.
There was shouting in the studio when Dziemianowicz-Bąk addressed Tyszka. – I would like to ask how the Confederation MPs voted for the election of deputy speakers of the Sejm of the 9th term – said the representative of the Left, and the host appealed to the invited guests for calm. — And were they represented in the presidium then? They weren’t, the MP added, referring to Tyszka’s statement.
— There is no such standard or custom. Do you know what the custom of the Sejm is? This means that if someone runs for Speaker or Deputy Speaker of the Sejm, he or she must win a majority. If the Confederation’s candidate obtains a parliamentary majority and is elected to such a position, he will be in the presidium, said the MP.
– Mr. Stanisław Tyszka and Mrs. Agnieszka Dziemianowicz-Bąk, please… (for silence – ed.). – Piasecki said in a raised voice, pointing out that the form of the discussion did not allow finishing any of the topics mentioned.
Later, he had to intervene once again when a Confederate MP accused the Left of not respecting the voters’ vote. – We respect because we recognize parliamentary mandates – commented Dziemianowicz-Bąk, emphasizing that the Confederation was about to “overturn the table” and now demands that “a chair be added to them”. Piasecki again asked for restraint of emotions.
