Prime Minister Donald Tusk has fired Justice Minister Jarosław Gowin after just a year and a half in the role. “I don’t have time to explain the minister away every week”, said Tusk, stressing that Gowin, who comes from the same Civic Platform (PO) party, unnecessarily “politicised” issues under his care and expressed opinions that were “troublesome” for the cabinet.

Rzeczpospolita notes that Gowin lost his post after accusing IVF clinics of trading with human embryos and even selling them to Germany where they were allegedly used for experiments.

Gowin will be replaced by Marek Biernacki (PO), a former interior affairs minister in the government of Jerzy Buzek.
