Ewa Kopacz, designated as Poland’s new PM, should present her new government on Friday, 19 September, with Grzegorz Schetyna, her chief opponent in the ruling Civic Platform (PO), expected to get the job of foreign affairs minister, Gazeta Wyborcza reports. Schetyna will replace Radosław Sikorski, who will become Speaker of the Sejm. Other new names in the cabinet shakeup include Teresa Piotrowska, who, as the daily highlights, will be the first woman to head the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Poland, as well as Cezary Grabarczyk (minister of justice) and Andrzej Halicki (minister of administration), who represent warring factions in the party now to be united ahead of next year's general elections.
