Government of continuation

It is a great honour for me that I can head the government of the Republic of Poland. I regard this public service not as an element of power, but as an element of responsibility and authority to make decisions on behalf of citizens, improving their lives, said the prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki during the government swearing-in ceremony. I can assure you that this government will draw on the to-date achievements, so it will be a government of continuation. Our reference points shall include secure families, decent jobs and affordable housing for the largest number of people possible. These social objectives can only be accomplished with a thriving economy, announced the head of the government.

The prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, assured that his cabinet would aim to preserve Poland’s cultural identity, its heritage and unique culture. In the crucible of recent global and European events, in the heat of disputes, we will always be guided by well-being of Poland and its citizens, stressed the prime minister. At the same time, we will make every effort to ensure that the government of the United Right is the government of the united Poland, of all citizens, so that we are appreciated by the people who did not vote for us. Our government will also be a government of hope and optimism, declared the prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki.
