Polish President Andrzej Duda on Tuesday appointed Jacek Czaputowicz as new minister of foreign affairs and Marek Blaszczak as new minister of defence during a ceremony at the Presidential Palace in Warsaw.

President Duda also appointed Joachim Brudzinski as new minister of internal affairs and Teresa Czerwinska as new minister of finance.

Lukasz Szumowski was appointed minister of health while Henryk Kowalczyk was named minister of environment.

Other appointments included Jerzy Kwiecinski as new minister of investment and development, Jadwiga Emilewicz as new minister of entrepreneurship and technology as well as Andrzej Adamczyk as minister of infrastructure.

PM Mateusz Morawiecki resigned from his posts as finance and development minister and designated Kwiecinski and Czerwinska to perform those roles.

During the appointment ceremony, President Duda declared he was open to cooperation with the Council of Ministers.

"I strongly believe that the changes taking place will further increase the efficiency of the government and individual ministries," the president said.

Duda praised Morawiecki for his "courage and ability to make changes, not only personnel ones but also structural and organisational changes."

These are aimed to "make ministries function more efficiently (...) so that we can more efficiently pursue the tasks that (...) we have undertaken for Poland and society," President Duda went on to say.

In his address, PM Morawiecki underlined the cabinet's obligation "to become a government of a great modernisation of Poland that is designed for people, Polish families, society and the strength of the Polish state", in the year that marks the 100th centenary of independence.

In early December, President Duda accepted the resignation of Beata Szydlo's government and designated Mateusz Morawiecki as the new head of government. A few days, later he appointed the new cabinet, with Morawiecki as prime minister and Beata Szydlo as his deputy. No other changes to the cabinet were made at that time. (PAP)
