Poland has serious doubts concerning signing new EU fiscal pact, sources say.

By bne IntelliNews January 16, 2012
Since several euro-zone member states do not want to allow non-zone members to participate in the single currency area's summits even if these countries sign the new fiscal treaty, Poland has "serious doubts" on whether to sign the treaty, according to a Brussels source of the Polish Press Agency. Under the current version of the agreement, also president of the European Parliament (now - Poland's former PM Jerzy Buzek) will be excluded from these summits. Poland's EU affairs minister Mikolaj Dowgielewicz recently said that the issue of the new fiscal pact is still open, though. He stressed that Poland will make the final decision when the new treaty's shape is established. The final decisions are expected at the end of January.
