Duda Criticises Tusk's Coalition, NBP Dep Gov Plays Down Accusations Against Gov Glapinski
- Donald Tusk has finalised the line-up of his future Cabinet, according to senior Civic Coalition lawmaker Marcin Kierwinski. Rzeczpospolita reported as much based on conversations with representatives of all three pro-EU coalition parties, who told the newspaper that the names of ministerial candidates will only be publicly announced when Tusk formally gets the mandate to form government in December. Much of the list of names has already been leaked to the press.
- President Andrzej Duda told "Sieci" that Donald Tusk "will not be his Prime Minister" and argued that the pro-EU bloc was not ready to take power immediately after the parliamentary elections, as its coalition agreement was only unveiled a month after the polls. He said that in his view the coalition "doesn't seem to be stable" due to the divergent views of its constituent parties.
- NBP First Deputy Governor Marta Kightley told Business Insider that the central bank has contacted the ECB, IMF and WB to discuss the "threats" directed at Governor Adam Glapinski. She assessed that calls for putting Glapinski on trial are politically motivated and any such action would be punished by the markets.
- NBP's Ireneusz Dabrowski told TVN24 that "2024 will be the year of approaching the inflation target", adding that in his view the target "will be reached before the end of next year".
