Jacek Olgierd Kurski (Polish pronunciation: [ˈjat͡sɛk ˈkurskʲi], born 22 February 1966 in Gdańsk) is a Polish politician and journalist, and the current chairman of the Polish national state broadcaster TVP. He was previously a Member of the Sejm (2005–2009), Member of the European Parliament (2009–2014), and State Undersecretary for the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage (2015–2016).

He was first elected to the Sejm on 25 September 2005, getting 26,446 votes in 25 – Gdańsk as a member of the Law and Justice party.

On 8 September 2010, Kurski was the only MEP to vote against a condemnation by the European Parliament of the execution of Iranian national Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani by stoning. Kurski stated that he voted against by error, and he corrected his vote almost immediately.[2]
