Poland elections: President Duda says he would ban LGBT teaching in the schools.
“Parents are responsible for the sexual education of their children,” Duda told a gathering of supporters. “It is not possible for any institutions to interfere in the way parents raise their children.”
Signing a “Family Card” of proposals including pledges to preserve special benefits for families and pensioners, he also said he would not allow gay couples to marry or adopt children. “It’s a foreign ideology. There is no consent for this phenomenon to happen in our country in any way.”
His main opponent is liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski of the opposition Civic Platform (PO) party, which is aligned with Donald Tusk’s EPP Party.
Trzaskowski has drawn criticism for introducing education about LGBT matters in Warsaw schools.
* Duda remains the frontrunner but after Tusk’s party managed to delay the elections (their original candidate was far behind, so after the original scheduled date, they slyly switched candidates), his lead has shrunk as the negative effects of the coronavirus began to damage the economy.
Actually, although damaged as expected, Poland’s economy has not been hit as hard as others in the EU, especially the Western bloc.
** Yet, there was something very odd and sleazy about the shenanigans involved with the delay of an election that was supposed to take place on May 10th.
But, this is how Donald Tusk and the charlatans of the PO-EPP operate…and they may yet be successful at manipulating the election.
