As Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki explained, the purpose behind the changes in the structure of the Council of Ministers is to simplify the decision-making process in the administration and make the government more efficient and effective. Thanks to that, Poland will have a chance to overcome the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic faster and battle COVID-19 more effectively.
Changes in the government are also intended to help build the welfare state which we have promised to the Polish people – Prime Minister explained.
It is the core of our programme, which is at the same time based on Polish and European values - he added.

Grzegorz Puda will be responsible for matters associated with agriculture and forestry and Przemysław Czarnek will become the Minister of Education and Science. Michał Cieślak will also become a new minister – member of the Council of Ministers.
