Today’s news round up in Poland Kalbar/TFN

Start your day with a summary of today’s top stories from Poland’s leading news sites. – A flu wave sweeping Poland has exposed a weakness in the health system, the newspaper Rzeczpospolita wrote on its front page. Queues have started to form outside pharmacies as people struggle to get medication for the illness. There are queues because the number of pharmacies open over holidays or at nights are decreasing owing to the costs associated with keeping their doors open. – The newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza wrote that the Polish skiing sector is still attracting investment despite climate change. Winters in the Polish mountains are becoming warmer, shorter and with less snow, the paper reported, but this has failed to deter investors putting money into the ski industry. A number of resorts have planned investment projects indicating that despite the challenges posed by climate skiing is still regarded as a business with a future. - The ruling United Right would win a parliamentary election, getting 33 percent of the vote, 4 percent more than the opposition, according to a new opinion poll, the public broadcaster TVPInfo wrote on its website. The poll also found that 67 percent of people consider the economy and the rate of inflation will be the key issues of the election. Other important topics are energy security and the rule of law. – The private news network TVN24 interviewed Marcin Matczak a constitutional lawyer at Warsaw University about new legislation on the rule of law that the governing Law and Justice party hopes will be passed and will thus help secure EU funding. He said that the legislation, which reverses some of the government’s changes to the Polish judicial system, represents a "failure" for Law and Justice because it undoes much of what it has dedicated seven years in office to introducing.
