We are interested in broadening and developing the Polish democracy towards the participation and civil society – Piotr Gliński said.

The deputy prime minister emphasised that Wojciech Kaczmarczyk had been active in the NGO sector for many years, as well as has experience in the scientific, educational and expert work. I met Minister Kaczmarczyk many years ago, as an activist of non-governmental organisations. I have been dealing with civil society issues for 30 years myself, and we have been cooperating closely for three years – Piotr Gliński pointed out.

Wojciech Kaczmarczyk said that his task will be to prepare a national programme for development of the civil society, monitor its implementation, as well as the state’s cooperation with the sector of NGOs and other civil institutions. Only cooperation between the state administration and non-governmental organisations can bring effects – the new government plenipotentiary emphasised.
