The Polish prime minister, amid a political scandal, decided to fire the head of the junior coalition partner, Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Gowin, from the government, thus bringing the coalition closer to disintegration.
This is reported by Onet.pl.
The dismissal of the leader of the party “Consent,” the junior partner in the coalition “Rights and Justice,” announced the government spokesman Peter Muller.
“There is a lack of trust between us, the activities assigned by the government are not carried out. That’s why Mateusz Morawiecki today asked to fire Jaroslaw Gowin,” Mueller said.
Govin told reporters that he learned from the media about his dismissal from his position as deputy prime minister. He announced that tomorrow the Consent board will decide what to do with the party’s participation in the governing coalition.
“This resignation is effectively the end of the coalition and the end of the United Right,” he stressed.
The conflict between the two coalition partners erupted after the decision to fire Concord party member Anna Kornetskaya from her position as deputy secretary of state at the Ministry of Development, Labor, and Technology.
In response, the board of Soglasie convened a meeting where they gave PiS an ultimatum. “The Gowinists made their continued membership in the coalition contingent on the consideration of their amendments to the “Polishstyle” and “lex TVN”.
