WARSAW – Prime minister safe in government reshuffle

“The success of the negotiations has shown that our isolation in the EU is a myth; it is also a myth that we are not able to build coalitions,” PiS party chief and Poland’s de facto leader, Jarosław Kaczyński, told the Polish Press Agency.

“I know that there are critics of the adopted solutions – even in our political camp. I want to tell them that they are very wrong”, said Kaczyński, referring to the opposition which – unlike Prime Minister Morawiecki and the Law and Justice (PiS) government – favours the interpretation that the rule of law conditionality was established during the summit.

Kaczyński referred to some politicians in his own party who, in recent days, have tried to undermine the position of Morawiecki before the expected government reshuffle.

Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro is said to be especially active in this respect, and even public TV (controlled by the government) recently attacked Morawiecki and his office for publishing ads of state-owned companies in the press critical of PiS.

However, Kaczyński has already said Morawiecki will remain in his post.
