It’s been a while since the opposition Law and Justice (PiS) party announced it would file a motion for a constructive vote of no confidence against the current government in order to replace Prime Minister Donald Tusk and his ministers with a technical government led by a sociology professor, Piotr Gliński.
Now it turns out this won’t happen soon as these plans have been put on hold for a short while. As revealed by PiS MP Joachim Brudziński, Poland's largest opposition party doesn’t want to weaken the PM during the upcoming crucial negotiations on the EU budget for the period 2014-2020.
“Most likely, during the negotiations on the EU budget, PiS will refrain from any actions that could be perceived as an attempt to undermine the position of Donald Tusk,” Mr Brudziński said yesterday, adding that his party does not want to be blamed for Donald Tusk's possible failure in the negotiations.
