Warsaw, December 12, 2023, The Europe Today: The new government of Polish Prime Minister-designate Donald Tusk won a vote of confidence on Tuesday.
It comes a day after a majority of Polish MPs elected Tusk as the country’s new prime minister when the proposed conservative government of acting PM Mateusz Morawiecki failed to win lawmakers’ backing.
Tusk became prime minister nearly two months after national elections won by a coalition of parties ranging from left-wing to moderately conservative.
Tusk and his cabinet are set to be formally sworn in on Wednesday morning by President Andrzej Duda.
He previously served as Poland’s prime minister from 2007 to 2014 before taking over as European Council president from 2014 to 2019.
