Warsaw : Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski will dissolve the country’s coalition government Monday, Deputy premier and coalition partner Roman Giertych said Saturday.
Law and Justice (PiS) party leader Kaczynski spoke of the decision in a meeting with him, said Giertych, chairman of the nationalist League of Polish Families (LPR) and education minister in Kaczynski’s cabinet.
Kaczynski announced that all LPR members would be removed from the cabinet on Monday, Giertych said, adding that he assumed the members of the radical farmer’s party Samoobrona would also be removed.
The move comes amid an escalation of political chaos in the Kaczynski government following the sacking of former deputy premier and Samoobrona leader Andrzej Lepper on as yet unproven allegations of corruption.
The political chaos has been compounded by a series of high-profile sackings in key state institutions including the interior ministry, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBS) and the national police.
The leader of the opposition Poland liberal Civic Platform (PO) Donald Tusk said Thursday following talks with President Lech Kaczynski that Poles would face an early general election in October.
