Poland’s lower house of parliament held a debate on Wednesday regarding the planned vote of no confidence against the government and against Interior Minister Bartłomiej Sienkiewicz. It is already known that both coalition parties will support the government and that left-wing MPs will abstain from the vote.

The motions for no confidence votes were filed by main opposition party Law and Justice, in connection with the publication of illegally recorded conversations between government officials. The situation in Poland has not improved since the previous no confidence vote, conducted 18 months ago, the party’s leader Jarosław Kaczyński said during the debate.

Prime Minister Donald Tusk said that the opposition party was using lies and inaccurate information to prove the government’s wrongdoing. He stressed that the Polish economy is in a good condition and boasted success in the fields of education and military equipment.
