Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk reshuffled his cabinet on Wednesday, replacing the finance minister and six others in his unpopular centre-right government, amid a sluggish economy and corruption allegations.
Mateusz Szczurek, 38, who replaces Jacek Rostowski as finance minister "guarantees the new energy we need in this post," Tusk told reporters in Warsaw.
Rostowski recently came under fire for his controversial pension reform plans and austerity measures. Szczurek is chief economist for ING Bank in Poland, specialising in macroeconomics.
