Polish leader rejects conversion to Euro
Martial laws should be extended across Southern Philippines until the end of 2019 — Rodrigo Duterte, on continuing violence in the area
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.
