The Failure of Morawiecki is offensive.

Published

on

Instead of a new opening with Brussels, there is a wrestling and pulling of a prolonged dispute. The prime minister is a hostage of party arrangements and party rhetoric. So where did the optimism in his camp come from?

From Brussels , there are rumors that the Polish “law book” explaining the Polish judiciary reforms to the EU’s partners has only upset them. What is more, the Polish response to the European Commission’s reservations consisted in recycling the existing arguments and, in essence, boiled down to the message: we will not take a step back. As a result, “show must go on”; the procedure of Article 7 will go on, eventually the Member States may vote on the statement “a clear risk of a serious violation of the rule of law”.

It seems that the image offensive of Morawiecki ended in a fiasco. Following in the footsteps of Viktor Orban, the new prime minister wanted to appease his partners with smiles and friendly gestures. However, he did not have what Hungary had in store: membership in a powerful European People’s Party and, above all, independence that would allow him to make even small concessions. And in the European Union – the global center of compromise – it is hard to come to any agreement without exchanging concessions.

One of the sources of this lack of room for maneuver is Jarosław Kaczyński’s supreme role – it is obvious. But this is not the only problem. Perhaps not even the most important one. It is just as much of a problem as much of the political capital the entire PiS has invested in the issue of pacification of courts. This was not the case for the merciless parliamentary blitzkrieg, it was not a continuous trial to the judges and it was explained that the ending of the “extraordinary caste” would be the final end of communism to withdraw from it now. If the entire political battle – including that with Brussels – was portrayed as an epic struggle of the forces of good against the international allied forces of evil, it is difficult now to give the enemy even a span of land.

It is difficult to do so not only because of the hard electorate. The problem also lies in the PiS politicians themselves. All the more so because the Morawiecki team is convinced that the “party activist” and – above all – the “zobrites” are actively plotting against him. Prime Minister’s people talk about it openly, rumors have been circulating for a long time. And recently, I learned that the same thing was heard by an American activist in Warsaw who was talking to the rulers. This is conspiracy theory, but it is not unfounded. On Monday, in the weekly “Sieci”, Robert Mazurek and Igor Zalewski quoted an anecdote about the people of Patryk Jakiego offering editorial materials intended to present the Prime Minister as “walking on the belt of Israel”. Other sources – including mine – confirm this story.

If the case concerned reprivatization and the Act on the IPN, then even more resistance can be expected regarding changes in the justice system, which Zbigniew Ziobro is the architect. The same Ziobro, who would like to be Kaczyński’s successor. The pressure to not allow concessions and compromise with Brussels is therefore double.

Nevertheless, there is optimism in the power camp about the prospects of ending the dispute with Brussels. Perhaps because the support of so many Member States has already been gathered that voting on article 7.1 will not happen at all (this is not excluded). Perhaps because, after another “betrayal” of Ziobro, his actions are so low that suddenly there was a field for compromise. Perhaps it is the result of friendly conversations with Angela Merkel . In any case, the optimism is so big that one of the party’s representatives was ready to bet on it. After all, I would not do it in his place.

Horror in Ukana as Woman’s arms cut off at Akpabio’s house during illegal registration

Published

Woman’s arms cut off at Akpabio’s house during illegal registration… abandoned to her fate
She was one of the women called to Senator Godswill Akapbio’s house in Ukana for what many present called an illegal registration exercise. She was promised a little over three thousand and like others who may not have known what they were being invited to do, she went innocently, the attraction being the measly three thousand naira she was promised.
“We were shocked when we saw people engaging in what I believe was an illegal registration exercise. There were machines all over the place, and Godswill Akpabio who had just returned from a trip outside the State was seen dishing out instructions. Some of us left the house shortly after we discovered they were asking us to register for the APC. We told them we already are card-carrying members of the PDP and that we couldn’t not sell our conscience. As that innocent lady made to leave, the gate at Senator Akpabio’s house slammed against her and her arm was cut off immediately. She started crying and writhing in pains, but to our shock, the security officers pushed her out of the house while blood was dripping all over her. I have never seen such inhumanity to a fellow person. Goodwill Akpabio was notified but he refused to come to the woman’s assistance. We had to pull our little resources to take the woman to the hospital. This is so sad. And it leaves me wondering: is this the kind of change Akpabio’s APC is bringing to Akwa Ibom: wickedness, horror and terror? May God not allow the counsel of the wicked to prevail. Akwa Ibom people must tell Godswill akpabio: no more blood-letting, enough!

Germany officially introduces the third sex.

Published

on

In the German register of civil status records, an additional option will appear next to the male and female gender. You will be able to choose  “divers”, meaning “different” or “non-identical”.

The German government cabinet has proposed amendments to the law on the register of civil status records. Under it, intersexual people will be able to choose the third password in the “sex” section in the future. Until now, it was only possible to leave this column unfulfilled by employees of the civil registry office. According to the German Ministry of Interior, this option will still be retained.

German Cabinet approves third gender option

Judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal

The draft amendment to the act, which will have to be approved by the parliament, is based on the ruling of the Federal Constitutional Court of 2017. It states that the existing provisions on marital status contain provisions allowing to recognize them as a violation of the fundamental right to protection and development of their own personality and violation of the prohibition of discrimination against someone on grounds of gender. The judges therefore asked for the possibility of introducing a “positive gender entry”.

The parliamentary secretary of state in the German Ministry of the Interior, Günter Krings ( CDU ), pointed out that the Federal Constitutional Court called on the legislator to meet the conditions enabling the implementation of the proposed changes by the end of this year. For this reason, it became necessary to introduce in the draft amendment to the aforementioned Act new provisions, but it does not need to be associated with the reform of the law regarding transgender people.

There will be a reform of the act

The Minister for Family Affairs Franziska Giffey ( SPD ) announced, however, that in the autumn the procedure for transsexuality should also begin. In her opinion, the regulations that have been binding until now “just do not match the spirit of our times”.

Justice Minister Katarina Barley (SPD) declared for her part that “nobody can be discriminated against in any way because of their gender identity”.
