    Kaczyński Plans to Leave Government After General Election

    Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the president of Poland’s governing Law and Justice (PiS) party and current deputy prime minister, has announced that his presence in the cabinet is temporary, and he intends to leave the government after the upcoming general election. Kaczynski’s return to the government last month as the sole deputy prime minister signaled his determination to secure a parliamentary majority for his party.

    Previously serving as prime minister from 2006 to 2007 during a previous PiS government, Kaczynski had stepped down from his positions as deputy prime minister and head of the government’s security committee in June of the previous year to focus on party affairs. However, in a recent interview with Super Express, Kaczynski revealed that his main focus is on the broader issue of security.

    “I do not intend to continue my work in the government,” Kaczynski stated. Furthermore, when asked about his aspirations to become prime minister if PiS wins the election, he made it clear that he has no desire for the position, stating, “I don’t want to be prime minister, I don’t take that into account.”

    Poland is scheduled to hold its general election this autumn, marking a crucial moment for the country’s political landscape.
