It is not my role to save any political parties. However, I am not indifferent to who is in the parliament and what they intend to do in the future. We live in a reality where one unwise step may make life more difficult for millions – writes the President of Employers of Poland Andrzej Malinowski in “Rzeczpospolita”.
– As the old saying goes, „Poles are only wise in hindsight”. In this case it appears that wisdom sadly has not arrived yet, an PO continues its suicidal march – remarks Malinowski.
According to him, in concentrating on in vitro, marriage equality and other issues important for relatively small groups, PO is turning its back on the core of its support. This is evidenced by the fact that the party which at the start of its rule enjoyed an 86 percent support among entrepreneurs, now only has support of a little over 10 percent of this group. According to the President of Employers of Poland, the answer to the question of why that happened is quite simple.
– PO was, and probably still is, a party of the nascent middle class – thinking people, people with aspirations, and what is most important: active. These citizens that Poland governed by PO would be different. That there would be less offices and absurd regulations, as state which helps citizens rather than setting traps on them. Courts which justly settle cases in a temporal perspective appropriate for ordinary citizens and not for the state’s convenience – writes Malinowski.
– What become of this? Today, Poland is a country of higher taxes and increased costs of business activity – assesses the President of Employers of Poland.
Andrzej Malinowski also draws attention to a Grant Thornton report showing that if one would want to keep up with new legislation on a daily basis, it would take 3.5 hours every day.
– In politics, similarly to business, the best cure is competition that requires quick thinking and decisive action. Those who do not understand that perish. It looks like the next few months will be a test for the party which rues Poland since 2007. Warm water in the taps will no longer suffice. PO has to move their asses and get to work – otherwise, in some time political scientists will have a field day dissecting the corps of this party – sums up the President of Employers of Poland.
