2020 June/July News: Polish Elections, Polish Films Online and more

A SALUTE

On Sunday July 12, 2020, Poland held its Presidential election.

In spite of all the many difficulties created by the pandemic that has done such damage throughout the world, Poland’s voters turned out in record numbers to cast their ballots to elect the country’s president.

Congratulations are in order to the Citizens of Poland!

Indeed, once again, in this, Poland’s seventh national presidential election since Poland regained its freedom in 1989, the contest was defined by a
firm adherence to the highest principles of democracy.

Moreover, this election was exactly like those that came before.
Indeed, since the founding of the Third Republic of Poland in 1989, nine parliamentary elections, seven presidential elections, along with a host of local elections and several national referendums have been held. All have been conducted in the most proper manner conceivable.

Congratulations to the Citizens of Poland

From the Officers, Directors, and Members

Polish President
visits the United States
June 24-25, 2020

Polish and US Presidents, Andrzej Duda and Donald Trump, agreed on Wednesday that Polish-American relations have never been better.

From the Joint Statement
signed after the White House talks:

“Poland and the United States share a centuries-old friendship and partnership based on shared values and interests, strong people-to-people ties, and mutual respect. Today we reaffirm the values that both our nations hold dear, especially democracy, the rule of law, individual liberties and freedoms, and free, fair, and reciprocal trade.”

The White House talks focussed on military security, energy independence, support for the Three Seas Initiative, cyber security and investments in new technologies.

The 2020 POLISH FEST (planned for June 11-13) is cancelled.

Good time to revisit the event photos taken over the last three years:
