Morawiecki fails to secure vote of confidence, Tusk’s candidacy for PM submitted
The Sejm received a parliamentary motion for the election of Donald Tusk as the Prime Minister, as stated on the Chamber's website. Earlier today, 190 members voted in favor of Mateusz Morawiecki's government, while 266 opposed, with none abstaining. Since the absolute majority of 229 votes wasn't reached, the Sejm didn't grant confidence to the Cabinet led by Morawiecki.
Sejm Marshal Szymon Hołownia announced that the initiative to appoint the prime minister now rests with the Sejm. Donald Tusk is the candidate of the Civic Coalition, Poland 2050-Third Way, and the New Left.
