President Bronislaw Komorowski on Monday appointed Marek Sawicki new agriculture minister. Sawicki, a prominent figure of the ruling coalition partner Polish People's Party (PSL), replaced his party colleague Stanislaw Kalemba who quit over the ASF pork ban.

 

As he handed the nomination to Marek Sawicki, President Komorowski wished him courage, determination and wisdom in the face of the difficult situation caused by the detection of the African Swine Fever in Poland.

 

The president stressed that the nomination came during turbulent times for Polish farmers due to the ASF cases and the ban on Polish pork imposed by Russia. Without determination on the part of Poland's government it will be difficult to achieve a joint stance among EU countries on pork trade with the East, Komorowski added.

 

Prime Minister Donald Tusk said that Poland needed government cooperation and very swift and competent decisions in relation to the pork problems.

 

The Ministry of Agriculture wants to solve the ASF problem within the next three weeks, the new minister said. He also announced plans for immediate dismissal of Poland's chief vet.

 

Marek Sawicki told reporters that intervention buy-up from the buffer zone had already started, with additional companies expected to join the intervention on Tuesday. (PAP)
