The Supreme Medical Council has issued an appeal to Speaker of the Sejm Szymon Holownia for the candidacy of Dr. Pawel Kukiz-Szczucinski for the position of Children's Ombudsman.

"The medical self-government recognizes the growing crisis in child and adolescent psychiatry. The worsening neglect and its remediation should be a priority of the Children's Advocate. The person in this position should be a psychiatrist, a practicing physician with experience in, among other things, working in a psychiatric clinic," reads a post on the Supreme Medical Council's profile on X (formerly Twitter).
