In the Sejm, the lower chamber of the parliament, the deputy of the Polish far-right Confederation (Konfederacja in Polish) Grzegorz Braun extinguished a lit Hanukkah candlestick in the corridor with a fire extinguisher. About the incident they informed Polish journalists on the X platform.
Braun stated that “those who participate in a satanic ceremony should be ashamed”. Marshal of the Sejm Szymon Hołownia excluded him from the meeting. The Law and Justice party used the situation to attack Hołownia: this would not have happened under our marshal.
Braun stated that he was not ashamed of his behavior. The leadership of the lower house of the parliament should meet and decide on a possible punishment for the MP. At the same time, a vote of confidence in Donald Tusk’s government is taking place in the Sejm.
