Witold Waszczykowski
Poland's long-expected cabinet reshuffle under the new PM Mateusz Morawiecki may find its finale on January 8, after the ruling party Law and Justice (PiS)'s top brass makes the relevant decisions just before the upcoming weekend, the daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna found out. PiS is unwilling to grant more than two departments to political affiliates of Jaroslaw Gowin, deputy PM at the helm of the allied grouping Porozumienie, and thus the candidacies of Teresa Czerwinska for the finance minister and Jadwiga Emilewicz for the development minister are mutually exclusive, a source within PiS suggests.
Emilewicz is favored by Morawiecki himself, but the ruling party prefers the other deputy development minister, Jerzy Kwiecinski, the source adds.
Two deputy finance ministers Pawel Gruza and Marian Banas are rivals, and thus appointing one of them as the new head of finance could make the other leave the department, the daily's informer says, while adding that Banas enjoys a stronger political support.
The fate of foreign minister Witold Waszczykowski is an enigma as the top presidential aide Krzysztof Szczerski is still hesitating over whether to accept the proposal to head the diplomacy of Poland.
