Today, on August 4, 2021, Anna Kornecka has been dismissed from the position of Undersecretary of State at the Ministry of Development, Labor and Technology. The decision was made by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
The above remains important in the light of the involvement of the former Undersecretary of State in numerous initiatives, including those of a regulatory nature, in the field of renewable energy sources. Deputy Minister Anna Kornecka led the work at the Ministry of Development, Labor and Technology regarding, inter alia, the draft act amending the act on investments in wind farms, which, as announced, is to be submitted to the Sejm at the turn of September and October this year. Moreover, it was within this ministry that a draft amendment to the RES Act was developed, providing for changes in the prosumer system, assessed as more favorable than those provided for in the government draft. In addition, in recent days, Deputy Minister Kornecka informed that the Ministry of Development, Labor and Technology was taking steps to enable energy communities using RES to benefit from the support from the National Reconstruction Plan.
According to the media, the deputy minister previously criticized the tax assumptions of the Polish Deal. The government spokesman argued that the former deputy minister had failed to fulfill her obligations related to the processing of bills related to housing.
Anna Kornecka commented on her resignation on Twitter:
When I joined the government, I had one goal: to defend Polish entrepreneurs. There is no consent to drastically increasing taxes and tributes for them. I don’t regret paying for it with my resignation. I will continue to work for those thanks to whom Poland is developing – to work in the same way as the entire Porozumienie – wrote Kornecka.
