Polish democracy has to be a democracy with a heart. A democracy based on a service-oriented approach, one which discovers new paths: one which is based on people’s participation in the government, in the economy, and in material and spiritual enrichment – he declared. The Prime Minister emphasised that he wants to create a government which will provide a link between the economy and the society, but also between the European and Polish (local) dimension. Which will link the global dimension with poviat level Poland. Which will combine law with justice – he added.

The head of the government wishes for his government to be remembered as one good for the Polish families and broadly understood Polish safety.

Changes in the composition of the Council of Ministers

In accordance with his announcement, the Prime Minister ceased to be the Minister of Development and Finance. The Ministry of Finance will be headed by Teresa Czerwińska, who until now acted as Deputy Minister and was responsible i.a. for drafting the state budget.

Due to the fact that implementation of EU programmes approaches its decisive phase, and preparations for the negotiations of the new perspective are expected to start soon, a decision was taken to establish the Ministry of Investment and Development, led by Jerzy Kwieciński, former Deputy Minister for Development. Issues related to economic policy, entrepreneurship and innovation will fall within the remit of the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology, headed by Jadwiga Emilewicz, former Deputy Minister for Development.

As the new Minister of Health, Łukasz Szumowski – cardiologist and professor of medical sciences, former Deputy Minister of Science and Higher Education – will be responsible for healthcare related issues.

Jacek Czaputowicz – professor of social sciences, expert in the field of international relations and the former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs – became the new Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Henryk Kowalczyk was appointed as the new Minister of the Environment and Jacek Sasin replaced him as the President of the Standing Committee of the Council of Ministers.

Joachim Brudziński, Vice-Marshal of the Sejm, will be the new Minister of the Interior and Administration in Mateusz Morawiecki’s government. Mariusz Błaszczak, who formerly held this position, is now responsible for managing the Ministry of National Defence.

Because the government treats the implementation of the Home Plus programme as the matter of special priority, it was decided that tasks in the field of construction will be transferred from the former Ministry of Infrastructure and Construction to new entities established after introducing changes in government administration departments. Andrzej Adamczyk became the head of the new Ministry of Infrastructure.

The Prime Minister will be directly responsible for supervising the Ministry of Digital Affairs.

New impulse for the government’s activity

Our government is not a government against anyone, we are the government which supports the new, increasingly better Poland which strives to fulfil new goals – stated Prime Minister Morawiecki, when he thanked the former Ministers, who were not included in his new Cabinet. The new Ministers and the entire Council of Ministers works precisely for the purpose of finding best ways to ensure our growth. Our common goal is to build important position of Poland within strong Europe – the Europe of homelands – Mateusz Morawiecki concluded.
