Kaczynski has no plans to become Poland's PM
The twin brother of Poland's former President, Jaroslaw Kaczynski has no plans to become the country's prime minister, Reuters.
The leader of Poland's ruling Law and Justice party (PiS) Jaroslaw Kaczynski told Gazeta Polska daily he has no intention for a high post amid speculations that he might step into the top government job.
The speculations arose when Prime Minister Beata Szydlo had announced planned changes in the government in September. Subsequently, then Deputy Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki took the country's Finance Minister post.
"(The option of changing the prime minister) was not seriously taken into account, as I would have been the only candidate and I do not have such plans," said Kaczynski, who earlier this year described the Szydlo government as an "experiment".
He added that he backed the decision to grant Morawiecki more tools to carry out his plan to boost the economy.
"A huge change in the economic sphere is ahead of us. Thanks to the recent changes in the government it is now entering the phase of initial implementation. If it succeeds (...) it will speed up economic growth by around 1 percent," said Kaczynski, who exerts huge influence from behind the scenes.
