‘PO-PIS Constitutional?’

Published on 25 March 2013 at 11:19


The ruling Civic Platform (PO) is willing to accept the main opposition party Law and Justice (PiS) party's proposal to hold a national referendum on Poland’s accession to the Eurozone. In return, PiS would back a motion to change the constitution allowing the introduction of the euro.

Currently, article 227 states that “The central bank of the state is the National Bank of Poland, which has an exclusive right to print money, plan and implement currency policy.” Once Poland joins the Eurozone, “all these functions will be taken over by the EBC”.

“PO expects that a battle to win the referendum will be easier than changing the constitution without PiS,” explains the daily.
