Premier Rejects Resignations

World IN BRIEF / POLAND

May 30, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

Poland's prime minister rejected the resignations of five Cabinet ministers, demanding new talks to keep his government from collapsing and facing elections it would probably lose. The ministers are from the Freedom Union, the Solidarity-led government's junior coalition partner, which wants Prime Minister Jerzy Buzek to step down. They resigned Sunday. Party leaders accuse Buzek of failing to keep maverick Solidarity lawmakers in line behind tough economic reforms needed to prepare Poland for European Union membership.
