He has been able to main­tain most of his gov­ern­ing coali­tion in the Cham­ber of Deputies, where he was the pre­sid­ing of­fi­cer for many years. Ger­many for the mas­sive losses in­flicted on Poland dur­ing World War II, an of­fi­cial said on Wed­nes­day. The Pol­ish par­lia­ment’s re­search of­fice is pre­par­ing an anal­y­sis of whether to make the claim and will have it ready by Aug 11, said Araka­diusz Mu­lar­czyk, a law­maker with the rul­ing Law and Jus­tice party.
