At a press conference on Tuesday, PM Szydło touched on several of the issues in the government’s roadmap for the first 100 days.
She said that “our priority for the ‘Family 500+’ programme is to ensure the required funds starting from next year.”
In terms of the country’s defence policy, the Polish head of government said that “Security issues are a priority for [Poland], we will do everything to ensure that the Polish army is well equipped”.
The foreign media were quick to point out that the conference did not include the flag of the EU, instead having only the flags of Poland.
The governing Law and Justice (PiS) party has said that this will be how future conferences will be held.
“[Future] Government conferences will be held against the background of the most beautiful white and red Polish flags,” the party tweeted. (rg/rk)
