PM Kopacz discusses personnel issues

The Polish Prime Minister is still without a spokesperson after resignations at the chancellery last week, but elections are looming.

“I have a plan in mind. I have made some decisions, which I will implement shortly,” PM Kopacz told Polskie Radio.

The head of government added, however, that even more important than personnel issues, is Civic Platform’s (PO) electoral programme for the parliamentary elections in autumn.

Commenting on the resignation of former spokesperson Iwona Sulik last week, PM Kopacz said that “after one stage ends, you have to start the next. This is a new year, let us remember that this is an election year, so we cannot get too muddled up in staffing issues, but also about how we will implement the [electoral] programme and how to head into an election.”

There will be two major elections in Poland this year, with Poles voting for a new president probably in mid-May, and a general election later in the year.

Iwona Sulik and PM aide Adam Piechowicz resigned late last week following reports they had coached opposition politicians on how to deal with media issues.
