By involving the leader of the Belarusian opposition in a purely party event, she is harmed and used instrumentally, assessed the deputy culture minister and PiS MP Jarosław Sellin in “One for One”. In this way, he commented on the behavior of the Deputy Speaker of the Sejm Ryszard Terlecki, who reacted to the invitation of Swiatłana Cichanouska to the Campus Polska Przyszłość Rafał Trzaskowski.
The guest of Friday’s “One for One” on TVN24 was Jarosław Sellin, Deputy Minister of Culture and Law and Justice MP. He was asked about the actions of the deputy speaker of the Sejm and the head of the PiS club, Ryszard Terlecki, who warned the representative of the Belarusian opposition, Swiatlana Cichanouska, against “advertising the anti-democratic opposition in Poland and appearing at the Trzaskowski meeting.” These words were spoken in reference to Cichanouska’s invitation to Campus Polska Przyszłość – an event organized by the movement of Rafał Trzaskowski, Wspólna Polska.
– Marshal Terlecki spoke on a matter that seems obvious to me. The consensus on Poland’s common policy towards Belarus should not be broken, said Sellin.
According to him, “if, for example, the leader of the Belarusian opposition, operating in exile, is drawn into a purely party event, very particular, and in addition to an uncertain movement that is just emerging, then both her and the Belarusian cause are harmed and exploited instrumentally” .
– It was a mistake of Rafał Trzaskowski and the advisor of Swiatlana Cichanouska – summed up.
Sellin recalled that Terlecki later wrote a letter to Cichanouska. “Due to the lack of reliable knowledge, you have served the Belarusian cause in Poland badly by flaunting with the politicians of the party that lost the election six times,” he wrote, inter alia.
– Marshal Terlecki described the situation and his position on this matter. Because of this letter, the topic is closed, Sellin said.
Terlecki’s dismissal from the position of the Deputy Speaker of the Sejm is being called for by Koalicja Obywatelska, Lewica and Polska 2050. The Sejm will vote on this matter.
– Marshal Terlecki will be the deputy speaker of the Sejm, even if the opposition has submitted such a motion, it will be rejected by the parliamentary majority, Sellin said. When asked if he was sure of the voice of Jarosław Gowin and his party, he replied: – I’m sure, the test will be in some time.
Speaking about Terlecki’s letter to Cichanouska, Sellin said: – I hope that after this letter Ms Cichanouska understands more about it … In my opinion, she should not go (to Campus Polska Przyszłość).
