Gaps between Polish president and prime minister

Warsaw, Mar 20 (Prensa Latina) The president of Poland, Andrzej Duda, declined today the possibility of ending the term of office of more than fifty ambassadors, proposed by Donald Tusk's government last week.

I did not formally receive any request for the withdrawal of a greater number of ambassadors (…) but I can announce in advance that I will not take any hasty decision, Duda said during a press conference in Slovenia, where he is visiting.

In his statements together with his Slovenian counterpart, Natasa Pirc Musar, in Ljubljana, the Polish head of state recalled that, according to the Vienna Convention, which regulates diplomatic relations, it is the president’s competence to appoint ambassadors, reported PAP agency.

We have to improve and build a legal team to the Polish state that will manage our affairs, Tusk said in expressing his intention to make changes in the diplomatic corps accredited abroad.

The relationship between Donald Tusk’s pro-European executive and the ultranationalist President Andrzej Duda led to an institutional crisis months ago that still threatens to paralyze the country.
