Tuesday, 9 January 2018 –  Poland’s President Andrzej Duda swore in new foreign, finance, defence, interior, health and environment ministers following a sweeping cabinet reshuffle.

The reshuffle comes just over halfway through the conservative Law and Justice (PiS) government’s term in office.

Economist Teresa Czerwińska is Poland’s new Finance Minister. Former Interior Minister Mariusz Błaszczak was appointed Defence Minister.

The Interior Minister’s portfolio was handed to PiS party stalwart Joachim Brudziński, up to now a Deputy Parliamentary Speaker.

Witold Waszczykowski was replaced as Foreign Minister by political scientist and lecturer Jacek Czaputowicz.

Łukasz Szumowski replaced Prince Konstanty Radziwiłł as Health Minister.

Henryk Kowalczyk, until now a Cabinet Minister heading the Government Standing Committee, is the new Environment Minister.

In other appointments on January 9, Jadwiga Emilewicz became the Minister of Entrepreneurship and Technology, Andrzej Adamczyk was appointed Minister of Infrastructure, and Jerzy Kwieciński became Minister for Investment and Development.
