Euro for Poland

Euro Soon for Poland?

Euro Soon for Poland?

Janusz Palikot’s party, Your Movement (TR), wants to change the Constitution and introduce the Euro in Poland as fast as possible. Palikot wants the amendment to be a joint initiative of Civic Platform (PO), the Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) and TR. He said that the proposed amendment was prepared in 2008 by the former Speaker of the Lower House and current President Bronisław Komorowski, so it has already been consulted within PO. The head of TR has proposed holding a referendum to convince Jarosław Kaczyński, the head of Law and Justice (PiS). “Changing the Constitution without a referendum is not possible,” said Palikot. He added that by introducing the Euro, Donald Tusk and the fast-imploding PO will at least leave a legacy behind after they are gone. TR MP Wincenty Elsner claims that the main change they want to introduce concerns the National Bank of Poland (NBP). The Constitution would read: “The central state bank of Poland is the National Bank of Poland which is part of the European system of central banks.” In order to change the constitution a two-thirds majority vote is needed. The ruling coalition would not have a majority even with the backing of SLD and Twój Ruch.
