Polish government will likely recommend Poland ratify the EU's fiscal pact, but will keep an open mind as the matter goes to public debate in the lower house of parliament on November 9, PM Donald Tusk said during a press conference.
"Together with [Foreign Affairs] Minister Sikorski we are ready to propose ratification, but we are open to all other voices," Tusk told a press conference.
The pending Parliamentary debate is slated for November 9, Tusk said.
"We will then determine in debate to what extent Poland and political elites in Poland are determined for Poland to take part in this part of integration," Tusk said.
The EU's fiscal pact tightening financial discipline in the EU countries was signed in March by 25 state leaders with the exception of Britain and the Czech Republic.
