Pro-EU Coalition Looks To Extend Price Caps, Establish Investigative Committees

  • Business Insider Polska asked the ECB, IMF and World Bank to comment on the alleged plans of Poland's incoming ruling coalition to press charges against NBP Governor Adam Glapinski after central bank officials said that they notified all three institutions. The ECB merely confirmed receiving a letter from the NBP, while the World Bank replied that it "does not interfere in the political affairs of its member states".
  • A draft bill published on parliament's website showed that the incoming pro-EU coalition intends to extend a freeze on power, gas and heat prices through 1H2024. The measure would cost PLN16.5bn and would be financed from the special COVID-19 fund. The draft bill also proposes to loosen regulations on building wind farms, which could help unfreeze suspended EU funding.
  • Almost 60% of respondents in a DGP/RMF FM survey said that they support the establishment of parliamentary committees to investigate the 2020 presidential elections, the use of Pegasus spyware against opposition politicians and the so-called cash-for-visas scandal. Rzeczpospolita reported that the incoming coalition considers establishing more committees later on to hold the outgoing government accountable for numerous alleged breaches of the law.
