For me, as Prime Minister of the Government, the most important thing is for Poland to become a state of law again, that is, for everyone to act according to their own authority.

It is surprising that the president decided to pardon, but did not issue a pardon decision. This can be tiring for people, because it is not clear whether the president has issued a pardon or not, because you have to wait for the prosecution's decision.
