Andrzej Sebastian Duda (born 16 May 1972) is a Polish lawyer and politician who has served as president of Poland since 6 August 2015. Before becoming president, Andrzej Duda was a member of Polish Lower House (Sejm) from 2011 to 2014 and the European Parliament from 2014 to 2015.
Polish president Andrzej Duda has proposed a constitutional ban on same-sex couples adopting children and plans to introduce this in an amendment on Monday (6 July).
During a meeting in Szczawno-Zdrój, in the south of the country, Notes from Poland reports the president as saying: “The Polish constitution should explicitly state that the adoption of a child by a person in a same-sex relationship is excluded. “On Monday I will sign a presidential draft amendment to the constitution [to that effect].” He added that he believed constitutionally banning same-sex couples from adopting would permanently end political discussions around the subject, as there would be “no need to discuss” it anymore.
