The view taken by Mazowiecki reflected not merely the continuing presence of communists and ex-communists in the government, but also fit his own cautious temperament. For him democratization itself would constitute the mechanism of decommunization. His government would assume full responsibility for developments during its tenure, but not for the previous system: ‘We are drawing a thick line to separate us from the past. 7 Mazowiecki’s approach meant that individuals would be judged case by case.
The Centrum (POC, later PC) was officially registered as a political party on 2 March 1991, and its first congress assembled the same day, confirming Jarosław Kaczyński as leader (Kaczyński remained a senator while also heading the president’s office). 36 ‘Poland needs a strong Christian Democratic Party’, Kaczyński said, and the completion of the ‘Polish revolution’. 37 From this early period Kaczyński attracted a corps of loyal personal followers who would provide his trusted praetorian guard after the Kaczyński twins won the 2005 presidential and parliamentary elections.
His extemporaneous interventions included the notorious promise of ‘100 million złoties for all’. Mazowiecki’s response to this barrage of criticism was ineffectual, and in general his campaign was badly organized. He remained on the defensive. 20 Neither side pulled its punches. 21 Kaczyński claimed that the social base of the Mazowiecki government lay in the interests shaped by the ‘powerful mechanism … of inter-personal linkages that emerged within the old system’. 22 Tymiński, like Wałęsa, effectively promised a painless transition to the market: capitalism without its ‘bad side’.
