European Council President and former Prime Minister of Poland Donald Tusk urged government and opposition to respect the people of Poland, the norms of the Constitution and morality amid continuing protests in Warsaw. He also said that the information constraints turn democracy into a dictatorship.

It is reported by DW with reference to AFP.

Reported that Tusk made this statement during a speech yesterday in Wroclaw, 17 December.

The head of the European Council thanked the opposition demonstrators, who stood for months "for European democracy standards.""If people feels the blocked access to information or authorities offer them a one-sided event model, democracy becomes just as unbearable as a dictatorship," - said Tusk, commenting on the Polish government's plans to impose restrictions on the work of parliamentary journalists.

Recall, the current Prime Minister of Poland Beata Szydlo accused the opposition of wanting to split the Poles. In a televised address, she said that it was the opposition caused the "radical political emotions", which have no relation to the actual situation in Poland. She is convinced, in this way the opposition is trying to satisfy its frustration from the loss of power.

Earlier on Saturday night under the building of the Sejm has gathered more than 2 thousand protesters who blocked the exits from the Parliament.
