Poland’s ruling party Law and Justice has presented its review of the PO-PSL coalition government in the period 2007-2015, accusing its predecessors of wastefulness, egoism and contempt for the people.
Since no written document has been published, the results of the audit were revealed in the Sejm by the Prime Minister and cabinet ministers.
Beata Szydło, head of the government, said that the review is not political revenge. “We feel responsible for telling Poles how much they lost on their government.” Szydło said.
“PO-PSL didn’t rule the country. They stayed in power and reaped profits from it…For eight years, they have been building a powerful state against the weak, and weak against the powerful,” the Prime Minister continued. “We estimate that Poland lost PLN 340 billion on the PO-PSL rule.”
Finance Minister Paweł Szałamacha claimed Poland lost PLN 60 billion on lower tax revenues, and Infrastructure Minister Andrzej Adamczyk asserted that Poland had the highest costs of building one kilometer of highway in Europe.
Szydło said she will file to set up a parliamentary committee of inquiry concerning Amber Gold, a ponzi scheme that went bust in 2012.
Mariusz Kamiński, head of the secret service, said that the previous government infiltrated “participants of anti-government and patriotic demonstrations, pro-life activists, and 52 journalists.”
“The audit is a lie-based grotesque. It’s PiS’s reaction to the May 7 demonstration. PiS has been in power for six months now and they keep focusing on PO – it’s a shame,” commented Grzegorz Schetyna, the leader of PO.
