Domański published a chart showing the weakening position of the zloty against the US dollar.
The publication of Andrzej Domański was referred to by Jan Grabiec, spokesman for the Civic Platform. “The value of the zloty 5 hours after the Prime Minister’s verbal intervention shows the total lack of investors’ trust in this government. The flight of capital from Poland continues” – we read in his tweet.
What is the prime minister trying to convince us?
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki informed that a significant part of the solutions included in the anti-inflationary shield are to be implemented before Christmas.
The head of government said at the press conference that the anti-inflationary shield was practically ready. – We will definitely want to implement it or implement significant parts of it before Christmas – announced Mateusz Morawiecki. He added that it would include such elements as “lowering the excise tax on energy carriers”. It is the energy carriers – as the head of government pointed out – that are jointly responsible for the sharp increases in prices.
Morawiecki: Historically high inflation
The Prime Minister added that inflation affects many countries. – In the vast majority of European countries, inflation is historically high compared to the last 20 or 30 years, and Gazprom and Russia are responsible for these prices, high energy prices, Nord Stream II is responsible, they are responsible for you in the European People’s Party – said Mateusz Morawiecki. According to the head of government, the members of the European People’s Party not only did not block Nord Stream II, but also supported its construction.
The prices of consumer goods and services in October 2021 increased by 6.8 percent compared to the same month last year, according to the data of the Central Statistical Office.
