The Polish Sejm at a meeting on Monday refused to extend the work of the interim government of Mateusz Morawiecki. It will be dissolved, new ministers will be appointed by deputies. This became possible after the parliamentary elections held in the fall, which were lost by the ruling Law and Justice party.
190 deputies voted in favor of granting a vote of confidence to the government, 266 voted against, the Polish Press Agency reports. There were no abstentions.
Donald Tusk will most likely become the new prime minister on Monday. The coalition supporting his candidacy has a majority of votes in the lower house of parliament. Tusk already headed the Polish government from 2007 to 2014. He was twice elected chairman of the European Council, the highest political body of the European Union.
