The World : Poles Oust Finance Chief

July 18, 1986

The Polish Parliament removed Finance Minister Stanislaw Nieckarz, replacing him with a close adviser to the premier. The new finance minister, Bazyli Samojlik, 43, had headed a team of Premier Zbigniew Messner's economic advisers. Western diplomats said the change gives Messner, an economics professor, a chance to exert more influence on the handling of Poland's huge hard-currency debt. Poland's foreign debt surpassed $30 billion this year, and Nieckarz was unable to stop its growth during his four years in office.
