The new parliamentary majority describes itself as pro-European, so it is no wonder that it expects Poland to adopt the common currency – the EURO. However, the conservatives currently in power are against it. The main obstacle will be the president of the National Bank of Poland, prof. Adam Glapiński.
He believes that Poland can join the EURO only when average earnings equal those in richer European Union countries. During the election campaign, Donald Tusk announced the removal of Glapiński by force and now he wants to bring him before the state tribunal. The head of the European Central Bank, Cristine Lagarde, considers such plans to be unlawful.
