Beger should leave “Self-defense” and enter the party “Right and Justice” which is headed by the Prime-Minister Yaroslav Kachinsky. That is the crisis was caused by the activity of “Edinaya Russia” after elections of 2003 which enlarged its fraction to the sizes of constitutional majority at the expense of enticement of deputies from other fractions.

Renata Beger agreed to participate in so-called "journalistic provocation" of telechannel TVN.

In spite of the fact that participants of demonstrations had no official sanction of authorities for carrying out of actions, meetings passed without excesses. The police did not interfere with what was going on, only observed demonstrators. At a meeting with journalists the largest oppositional parliamentary party - liberal "Civil Platform" - demanded to call an extraordinary session of parliament and to vote for self-dissolution of Seym and carrying out of prescheduled elections.

Leader of CP Donald Tusk who lost presidential elections to one of the brothers Kachinsky categorically demanded immediate resignation of the ruling government. "It is political corruption, attempts of high government officials to buy up deputies are immoral", - Tusk said. In his opinion, in Poland "an extreme situation arose".

Answering a question of journalists about possible repetition in Warsaw of recent events in Hungary Tusk emphasized that CP "would like to avoid repetition of the Hungarian events" and "for this very reason demands carrying out of prescheduled election".
