Leaders of the party reported in turn the formation of an independent parliamentary group.

This sequence of events follows the decision of the Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, to remove the leader of Agreement, Jaroslaw Gowin, from the position of Deputy Prime Minister.

The party was a minority in the government, led by the ultra-conservative Law and Justice party (PiS), and opposed executive initiatives that include tax reform, a new media law and a post-Covid-19 reconstruction plan with community funds.

These measures were rejected at the time by the European Union for being harmful to Polish society and limiting the actions of judges, magistrates and other legal figures.

Now the PiS maintains a simple majority in Parliament, with 198 of the 460 deputies, although it controls 222 votes owing to its alliance with another two parties.
