War­saw: The leader of Poland’s rul­ing party has spo­ken out against hav­ing Poland con­vert to us­ing the euro. Jaroslaw Kaczyn­ski sug­gested that as the Poles as­pire to west­ern Euro­pean liv­ing stan­dards, stick­ing with the lo­cal zloty cur­rency would pro­tect them dur­ing in­ter­na­tional fi­nan­cial crises. At the same time, this strong critic of the EU said that Poland’s strong po­si­tion in the 28- mem­ber bloc will help im­prove Pol­ish liv­ing stan­dards. Kaczyn­ski spoke at the party’s par­lia­men­tary pol­icy meeting on Fri­day. An EU mem­ber since 2004, Poland has been am­biva­lent about con­vert­ing to the euro, say­ing it first needs to meet all the nec­es­sary cri­te­ria.
