Speaking to members of the PO parliamentary club on Thursday, Komorowski declared that he wants to join the club ahead of the parliamentary elections later this October.
“Nothing has ended, rather everything is beginning […],” said the head of the PO caucus Rafał Grupiński, who said that “we want ot contiune our cooperation with [Komorowski].”
Bronisław Komorowski thanked the support of PO, although raised his doubts as to the possible outcome of the parliamentary elections this autumn.
“We have a duty to prepare ourselves for the next fight, the democratic battle that is the general election,” Komorowski underlined.
Unofficially, PO MPs are saying that Thursday’s meeting is to cover up a negative impression within the party following Komorowski’s defeat.
The party’s Secretary General and Sports Minister Andrzej Biernat had told journalists earlier this week that the campaign had been in effect run by Komorowski rather than PO.
However, on Thursday Biernat said that his comments were made off the cuff following Sunday’s election result. “Everyone’s human, and everyone has their emotions,” Biernat said. (jb)
