WARSAW Dec 19 Despite protests, media still are
not allowed to access Poland's lower house of parliament Sejm,
Stanislaw Karczewski, speaker of the upper chamber Senate said
Last week, Sejm's speaker Marek Kuchcinski decided to ban
journalists from access following protests triggered by the
ruling party plans to limit media access to Sejm.
"I spoke to Mr. Kuchcinski this morning, yesterday. He
upholds his decision," Karczewski told a news conference after
his meeting with representatives of the media regarding their
access to parliament.
He said media will be able to access the Senate during its
sitting on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Sejm is the centre of the
political life in Polish parliament.
