Hello Wojciech Plocharski,
I am a journalist working for
an arts & music program called Zündfunk which is broadcast daily on German Public Radio. At the moment I am making a report
about what artists, musicians, writers in Poland think about the victory of the conservative parties in the parliamentary
election. We want to know what this means for/explains about the social and political climate in your country, whether you
personally think this shift of power from the left to the right is good or bad, whether it could change the relationship between
Germany and Poland or the position of Poland in the EU ... Just write us what comes to your mind, even if it is pretty speculative
at the moment, because the new government has not been built yet.
I wanted to ask you now whether you could write
us a short letter (20-30 lines) in English, in which you tell us your opinion about this issue. It would be really great if
you would take part in this little project. The deadline would be tomorrow, but if you could write something today, it would
be great, too.
Thank you in advance and best regards,
Frederik Kunth (Zündfunk, Bayern2Radio)
Dear Frederik Kunth,
It's a pleasure to write you some informations
about my point of view. Firstly I'd like to correct west-european vision connected to word conservative party. PiS (Law and
Justice) is simply continuation of post-soviet thinking, however, in this case, with religious background. This party uses elements of revengeful populism, says also about consolidation
of national community (in the European Union, globalism and internet era!), announces sanitation of the state, what can mean
purges and chases, I'm afraid.
The second winning party PO (Civic Platform) is more democratic
grouping and has regular, unidealistic vision, suitable business experience and international refinement. Civic Platform is
able to act for polish-german relationships improvement, I hope, what is important for stronger European Union naturally.
