Polish Parliament Votes in New Government

July 12, 1992|Associated Press

WARSAW — Parliamentary deputies on Saturday approved the Cabinet of new Prime Minister Hanna ending a five-week impasse that had left Poland virtually without a government.

Suchocka's 22-member Cabinet is backed by a coalition of seven parties descended from Solidarity, the trade union movement that forced the Communists out of power in 1989.

The Finance Ministry and other key economic posts are held by politicians who favor pressing on with Poland's bold market-oriented reforms.

Suchocka, a 46-year-old constitutional lawyer who is a member of the centrist Democratic Union, was voted in Friday as Poland's fifth post-Communist prime minister and the first woman to hold the post.
