Jarosław Niewierowicz: AWPL will have to justify themselves to their constituents

The former Minister of Energy Jarosław Niewierowicz tried to convince the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania (AWPL) not to appoint Renata Cytacka the Deputy Minister of Energy, but to no avail.

“I tried to explain them the negative effects of this decision on the state’s interest and the image of the party, but my arguments were not convincing enough” – said Jarosław Niewierowicz.

The former Minister explained why he did give in the to the party’s decision. If he has not stopped insisting, he would be accused of “being more interested in the ministerial position than the interest of Poles living in Lithuania”.

“The Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania will have to report the recent events and justify how certain decisions help in keeping the election promises. I do not think that they will get away with that so easily” – added Niewierowicz.
