Jagna Marczulajtis-Walczak, an MP in Prime Minister Tusk's Civic Platform party, insisted, however, that she had not known about her husband's conversations last week with the editor of local web site lovekrakow.pl.

“I am sorry about the situation, but it did not arise from any direct guilt on my behalf,” she claimed.

“For the sake of the Krakow 2022 Winter Olympics project, I have taken the decision to resign as chairman of the Krakow Competition Committee 2022,” she added.

Marczulajtis-Walczak, a former Olympic snowboarder, commented that she had been in Turkey for a conference when her husband held talks on the matter.

She added that her husband, Andrzej Walczak, was never a member of the committee, and so was not authorised to take part in any negotiations concerning the campaign.
