The congress, which will be a closed-door event, will begin at 11 AM and is expected to last all day.
- During the congress we will elect the party Chief Executive and the Political Council, the National Audit Committee and the Peer Disciplinary Court - informed PiS spokeswoman Anita Czerwińska.
The delegates will also adopt a resolution to amend the statute, which will concern the party's organizational structure. One of the changes is that the position of the head of the Executive Committee will disappear from the organizational structure of PiS. In its place - again - will come the post of General Secretary of the party; this position was in place until October 2009; most probably, Krzysztof Sobolewski will be the Head of the Law and Justice Committee.
Changes will also be made to the organization of field structures to improve district management.
According to the Polish Press Agency (PAP), congress will not see the changes recently reported in the media, such as increasing the number of districts to nearly 100.
- We will be making changes in stages. Details will be presented during the congress by the Leader of the Law and Justice - said a politician close to the party leadership.
- During the speech, the Leader will also sum up the six years of the United Right's rule, what we have achieved, and present the party's vision, how it has to change so that we don't become an opposition - indicated a politician from Kaczyński's environment.
On Sunday, the newly-elected Political Council will meet to elect the party's Vice Presidents, as well as the composition of the Political Committee, Ethics Committee and Secretary-General.
At the moment, the Vice Presidents of PiS are Beata Szydło, Joachim Brudziński, Antoni Macierewicz, Mariusz Błaszczak and Mariusz Kamiński. It has been reported for some time that Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki would join this group.
The Law and Justice Congress was supposed to be held last fall but was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Jarosław Kaczyński has served as the Leader of the party continuously since January 2003. He replaced his brother, later President of Poland Lech Kaczyński, who was the first Leader of the party in the years 2001-2003.
