  • Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki's time in office draws to an end. The leader will deliver his policy speech ("exposé") in parliament at 09:00GMT/10:00CET, with the lower house expected to reject his proposed Cabinet in a vote around 14:00GMT/15:00CET. The new parliamentary majority will then propose Donald Tusk as its candidate for Prime Minister this evening, setting the stage for his exposé scheduled for Tuesday morning. Once Tusk wins a vote of confidence around 14:00GMT/15:00CET on Tuesday, his Cabinet may be sworn in by President Andrzej Duda early on Wednesday. This would allow Tusk to represent Poland at the EU-Western Balkans summit later on Wednesday. The President's chief aide Marcin Mastalerek today confirmed that Duda will seek consultations with Tusk today to set the date for the swearing-in ceremony.
