Polish PM pledges to present cabinet overhaul within days

By bne IntelliNews November 19, 2013

PM Donald Tusk has pledged to carry out a cabinet overhaul in the next few days. According to local media, the official announcement of changes to the government's line-up should be expected on Thursday. However, Tusk said there are three cabinet meetings in the pipeline for coming days (Nov 19, Nov 21 and Nov 26) that may be followed by presentation of cabinet changes.
Earlier this week, minister of transport and construction Slawomir Nowak stepped down (in connection with prosecutors' allegations), while minister of higher education and sciences Barbara Kudrycka announced her plan to resign, too.
However, the Premier stressed that the government reconstruction will be in-depth. He argued that this move is necessary so as to reshape some of government priorities. Tusk went on to say that he will talk to a number of ministers in coming days and will part with some of them. The announcement came during a conference devoted to summing up the middle of Tusk's second term in office as the Prime Minister.
According to weekly Wprost, the new persons in the government line-up could be Joanna Kluzik-Rostkowska as minister of education and Lena Kolarska-Bobinska as minister of higher education and sciences.
