Power struggle at the top

Article's tools:

Polish president Andrzej Duda's growing conflict with defense minister Antoni Macierewicz is mostly a power struggle over the president's role as the constitutional commander-in-chief, writes the daily Rzeczpospolita.
Officially the ruling party Law and Justice (PiS) is trying not to escalate the conflict, but the tensions have already been clear, the daily reports. The conflict is damaging for the president, defense minister and the military, former deputy defense minister Janusz Zemke told the daily Gazeta Wyborcza.
The question of potential governmental reshuffling and departure of Macierewicz may be back in play, former minister of defense Tomasz Siemoniak said.
Duda hits PiS's weakest link, Antoni Macierewicz, and some decisions will need to be taken by the ruling party, Siemoniak told Gazeta Wyborcza.
An impasse in the relationship might be a likely scenario, according to speculations mentioned by Rzeczpospolita.
