Polish president Bronisław Komorowski might send the government bill on the cutback of employment in government agencies to the constitutional court.
An anonymous source told the Polish Press Agency (PAP) yesterday that even though president Komorowski supported the general idea of cutbacks for the sake of decreasing the budget deficit, he was not sure about the constitutionality of the bill. The bill which was passed by the Polish parliament in December last year foresees that about 10 per cent of all employees in government agencies be released in the period 2011-2013.
President Komorowski still has one day to decide whether to sign the bill, send it to the constitutional court or veto it. If he decides not to sign it, this would be the first such case since his inauguration in August last year and a very unexpected one, too, as Komorowski is a member of the Civic Platform – the party of prime minister Donald Tusk.
