The fact election campaigns have their own rules does not mean that we, the voters, have to accept the rules unconditionally, particularly when the game that is being played is based on incredible cynicism and boundless stupidity – writes President of Employers of Poland Andrzej Malinowski in “Rzeczpospolita”.
According to him, Poland’s energy security cannot be talked of without referring to the geopolitical situation in our region and our countries position in the EU. One should not speak to hastily – particularly when the matter at hand is so complicated.
The President of Employers of Poland warns of unconstructive criticism of the delayed construction of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście. – Lamentations will not make the investment proceed faster – especially since these complaints are not accompanies by concrete and constructive suggestions on what to do – he assesses.
– I truly expect the worst of the political commentary after we get to know the results of PGNiG’s negotiations with Gazprom on gas price cuts. For professional critics even the biggest cut will not be satisfactory. Talking Poles into believing that Gazprom is weak, so could agree to practically anything is simply stupid – adds Malinowski.
He emphasizes that when the results of the negotiations are known, the discussion should not focus on using gas supplies as political ammunition, as the politicization of the energy industry will not serve us well.
– It is not by accident that in this presidential campaign we do not hear much about improving Poland’s energy policy. It is harder to say something reasonable about that then to promise a welfare paradise. This makes me all the more concerned that if energy appears in this campaign at all, the subject will be limited to attacks rather than constructive suggestions – Malinowski concludes.
