: President of Poland wants to change constitution?
So what's all this about?
Speaker of the Polish parliament Małgorzata Kidawa-Błońska has criticised calls by newly installed President Andrzej Duda for a new constitution, including a revision of the presidential role.
"As we have observed in recent years, the president's role is stipulated in the constitution - and it is quite a strong role - with authority over the armed forces, the representation of Poland abroad, and the opportunity to put forward own bills," she said during a speech at Gdańsk's Hewelianum Centre.
The article doesn't say what changes he wants to make, so can someone here fill me in.
Should we be worried, will we all be pledging allegiance bowing towards a crowned eagle in a few weeks' time???
I joke of course, but what changes does he want to make?
Also, this is nonsense:
The presence of NATO in Poland and Central and Eastern Europe should increase, said President Andrzej Duda in his first interview for Polish Radio since taking office.
"The aim is very simple: to strengthen Polish security, [while at the same time] strengthening security guarantees for Central and Eastern Europe," stressed President Andrzej Duda, adding that the number of NATO bases in Poland should increase.
Andrzej Duda has said many times that NATO should have a stronger presence in the country.
NATO have done f!ck all good ever and having them here would only add fuel to the fire.
