The President of Poland will nominate Morawiecki for the post of Prime Minister.

Polish President Andrzej Duda said that he has decided to submit a candidacy for the post of Prime Minister of the country to parliament.

“After calm analysis and consultations, I decided to entrust the mission of forming a government to Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. By doing so, I decided to continue the good parliamentary tradition, according to which the winning group is the first to have the chance to form a government,” Duda said in a televised address on Monday.


According to the results of the recent parliamentary elections, the ruling Law and Justice party in Poland received 194 seats in the Sejm, and the opposition Civic Coalition – 157, Third Way – 65, Left – 26.

 

Another 18 seats were won by the coalition of nationalists and Eurosceptics “Confederation”. This balance of power suggests that PiS will not be able to independently form a majority government, and if the opposition manages to unite, then it will have 248 seats in the Sejm out of 460 and will have a chance to form a government.
