President designates M. Morawiecki as prime minister
President Andrzej Duda on Thursday morning designated the incumbent prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, to continue his duties as the head of government in the next parliamentary term.
The president said the October 13 parliamentary elections had brought a clear outcome, adding that it is only natural that the incumbent prime minister is asked to form a new government when his party has remained in power through popular vote.
Andrzej Duda praised Morawiecki's political experience, including his roles as deputy prime minister, finance minister and, ultimately, prime minister.
The president said that after talks with Morawiecki, and being aware who the candidates for ministers are, he is "absolutely convinced" that the new government will be effective.
The president also said he and Morawiecki shared a vision for Poland's development and the priorities that should be pursued, both in domestic and foreign policies, and assured Morawiecki of his support for "the good change" the government has been implementing.
