lech_kaczynski-president-polandLech Kaczynski, conservative, closely related to Peace and Justice party, led by his twin brother Jaroslaw, former mayor of Polish capital Warsaw and professor of law at University of Warsaw, has taken the office of Polish president, after swearing an oath before the National Assembly (joined houses of Sejm and Senate).

He has added to his oath the words “so help me God”, as it is common, but not mandatory, in Poland.

For the first time since 1989 the former presidents of Poland, Lech Walesa and Aleksander Kwasniewski, have been invited to the ceremony. Kaczynski hasn’t got the insignia of authority of the Second Republic of Poland, as they were relayed to a museum by Lech Walesa, when he ended his term as the president of Poland in 1995.

In his speech, Kaczynski stated that Poland needs a new consitution. Its revolution would be the end of the process of building up the new Republic of Poland, called “IV Rzeczpospolita”, according to new president. Kaczynski promised also that he will do everything, what he is allowed to, to help lawmakers introduce essential reforms.
