President's Twin Tapped to Be Prime Minister

July 09, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

Poland's governing Law and Justice Party accepted the prime minister's resignation and recommended that its chairman, who is also the identical twin of the country's president, replace him.

Chairman Jaroslaw Kaczynski said the party had considered the difficulties of having twin brothers as president and prime minister, but added that it was natural for the head of the governing party to be prime minister. The current prime minister, Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz, said he would submit his resignation to President Lech Kaczynski, who would then ask his twin brother to form a government.
