Polish Deputy Prime Minister Przemyslaw Gosiewski said on Wednesday that it was impossible to clear up all clues in the case of Andrzej Lepper by Friday.

"All evidence is part of an ongoing investigation," he said in a television interview.

"The coalition will survive and there are no reasons for Self- Defense to leave the government," Polish PAP news agency quoted Gosiewski as saying.

Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski said later in the day that he would not reveal any evidence in Lepper's case by Friday.

"Evidence is part of prosecutors' office's proceedings. I cannot treat such a request seriously," the prime minister told a press conference in Swinoujscie, north-western Poland.

Former deputy prime minister, Andrzej Lepper, on Wednesday rejected corruption allegations hanging over him as a deliberate " political provocation," but reiterated that his party would remain in the shaky governing coalition.

Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski fired Lepper, who leads a junior coalition partner, Self-Defense, as deputy premier and agriculture minister Monday after anti-corruption police linked him to a major corruption case.

On Tuesday Lepper said that Self-Defense would remain in the coalition under certain conditions and requested that all evidence against him be revealed by Friday.
