The Polish prime minister in the long-expected government reshuffle has named new agriculture, climate and development and technology ministers, and reinstated the Ministry of Sports and Tourism.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the leader of Law and Justice (PiS), the dominant party in Poland’s governing coalition, has ruled out a reconstruction of the government although some individual changes may take place.
There is currently no discussion about a reshuffle of the Polish government in the sense of several ministers being changed at once, the government spokesman said on Monday, conceding that some changes may however occur.
President Andrzej Duda made changes on Wednesday afternoon in the top staff of his assistance body, the President's Office, including the appointment of Grażyna Ignaczak-Bandych as its new head, presidential spokesman Błażej Spychalski told a press briefing.
The current reshuffle will streamline the Polish government's work by cutting red tape and costs, which in turn will help Poland to better overcome the effects of the coronavirus crisis, PM Mateusz Morawiecki said on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on Tuesday said that a government reshuffle will most likely take place in late September or early October.
Talks are continuing and but real decisions concerning the upcoming government reshuffle are yet to be made, Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki told the Polsat News private broadcaster on Friday after the ruling United Right camp's meeting earlier in the day.
The leader of Poland's ruling party Law and Justice (PiS) has announced a government reshuffle but underlined that PM Mateusz Morawiecki will continue to head the Council of Ministers. He added the reshuffe will take place after the holidays.
Polish President Andrzej Duda appointed new ministers to PM Mateusz Morawiecki's government on Tuesday morning. The reshuffle has come in the wake of the recent European Parliament elections.
