Poland

Reshuffle likely after Transport Minister resigns


Published

Sławomir Nowak has resigned his position as Minister of Transport, Construction and Marine Economy of Poland following a decision by prosecutors to press charges against him for failing to declare a watch worth zł.17,000 (£3,397; $5,463) in his financial declaration. Ministers are obliged to record all assets worth zł.10,000 and failure to do so can lead to imprisonment.

The Warsaw Business Journal reports that Barbara Kudrycka, the Minister of Science and Higher Education, has also indicated that she may resign next week. Any such move would almost certainly trigger a Cabinet reshuffle by Prime Minister Donald Tusk which has been mooted for some time.
