After his speech in the lower house, a far-right Confederation MP Grzegorz Braun directly addressed Poland's Minister of Health Adam Niedzielski and said: "You will hang". Deputy house speaker Małgorzata Kidawa-Błońska called his words "a huge scandal". "I disagree with the minister over many issues, he said many foolish things. But I will defend you against such comments. This was a criminal threat, a truly awful thing," said Polish People's Party leader Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz. Shortly after, minister Niedzielski himself took the floor. "I wouldn't like us to limit ourselves to just condemning, and not drawing consequences. Either we're assertive, or chiming in," he said.
