Polish Government Pressed to Hike Spending to Avoid Poll Defeat

20 12.05.2015 Инфо

Senior figures in Poland's ruling party, stung by a reverse for their ally in a presidential ballot, say they want the government to increase public spending to prevent defeat in this year's parliamentary election. The party sources said that without action, the government risked succumbing to the same disenchantment that pushed President Bronislaw Komorowski into a surprise second place in the first round of the vote for head of state on Sunday. However, loosening the purse strings could cost the governing Civic Platform party its hard-won reputation with investors for fiscal prudence.
