No reason to replace PM, says ruling party leader

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the leader of Law and Justice, the dominant party in Poland’s ruling coalition, has said there is no reason to replace the prime minister or make changes to the government.

Kaczynski, often regarded as the most powerful politician in Polish politics, affirmed his faith in Mateusz Morawiecki, during an interview with Sieci, a weekly magazine.

"At the moment, there is no possibility to make changes in the government, and to replace the prime minister would mean a change in the government," said Kaczynski.

"That would be a very risky undertaking," he pointed out.

He added that the prime minister was "an extremely efficient and resilient man, and this was visible recently in the Sejm (lower house of parliament – PAP)." He pointed out that even though the opposition was "howling and behaving in an appalling manner," the prime minister carried on "as if nothing was happening."
