Polish President Lech Kaczynski plans to designate Civic Platform leader Donald Tusk as Prime Minister this week, Michal Kaminski of the Presidential Chancellery said on Monday.
According to Kaminski, the President is to meet leaders of all parliamentary groupings on Tuesday.
"First, the President will meet with Donald Tusk of the Civic Platform (PO), then with Polish Peasant Party leaders. In the afternoon he will meet with opposition parties' leaders, that is Law and Justice (PiS) and Left and Democrats," Kaminski said.
"The meetings will be held as political consultations to help the President make a decision to designate Donald Tusk as Prime Minister," Kaminski was quoted by Polish PAP news agency.
In the same day, Prime Minister and leader of PiS Jaroslaw Kaczynski submitted his cabinet resignation to President Kaczynski.
In the Oct. 21 early parliamentary election, the largest opposition party Civic Platform obtained 209 seats in the 460-member Sejm, or the lower house of the Parliament, becoming the biggest winners of the election.
