Former PM Leaves Wife

Former prime minister Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz has been hot news in Polish tabloids in the past several weeks after he announced he was leaving his wife and four children, aged from 14 to 27, to start a new life with a much younger partner.

The news caused shock in some political circles in Poland because Marcinkiewicz, 50, hails from the Christian-National Union (ZChN), a party with conservative views on family values.

Marcinkiewicz headed the Law and Justice (PiS)-led government between November 2005 and July 2006 and went on to become the Polish representative in the board of directors of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Marcinkiewicz told his family at Christmas that he had decided to leave them. He has already bought an engagement ring for his new partner and moved in with the woman, whom he met last summer in London and who works in the financial sector. Even though the love affair has made headlines, opinion polls indicate the affair has not dented Marcinkiewicz's popularity.
