On Tuesday, the Chancellery of the Prime Minister announced who will be part of the new Polish government, with one of the biggest changes being the inclusion of Law and Justice (PiS) leader Jarosław Kaczyński as deputy prime minister.
“He will strengthen our government. Owing to this, the United Right will be working even better to fulfill our program,” Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki declared.
Morawiecki said that the new government will be even better at facing the challenges ahead of Poland internally, but also in the European and global arenas.
The prime minister added that the stability of the United Right, which is visible, is a good forecast for efficient governing.
Apart from Kaczyński, other deputy prime minister will include Jacek Sasin, Piotr Gliński and also Agreement leader Jarosław Gowin, who has returned to join the Council of Ministers.
This is the first time since 2007 when Kaczyński will be a part of the government.
Between 2006 and 2007, he was the prime minister and succeeded Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz, and was later succeeded by Donald Tusk.
According to unofficial sources for Polsat News, Jarosław Kaczyński will direct the new State Security Committee n his role as deputy prime minister, which will coordinate the working of three different ministries: the Ministry of Justice, led by Zbigniew Ziobro, National Defense, led by Mariusz Błaszczak, and Internal Affairs, led by Mariusz Kamiński.
