Polish Premier fires coalition partner's chairman
Kaczynski needs the approval of President Lech Kaczynski, his twin brother, for the dismissal, which he said may come today. He will try to persuade individual members of Self Defense to leave the party and support his government. Otherwise, early elections will be called, he said. Lepper opposed Finance Minister Stanislaw Kluza's plan to cap the fiscal shortfall at 30 billion zloty ($9.7 billion). Law & Justice officials called on individual Self Defense lawmakers to break from the party and back the coalition as independents. Jan Cepil, a Self Defense lawmaker, said in an interview today on private television station TVN24 that 15 of his parliamentary colleagues have already decided to leave and set up a separate parliamentary group that will support the Law & Justice-led government. That is still not enough to secure a majority for Law & Justice. (Bloomberg)
