Shift to More Liberal Regime Seen in Warsaw

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Reconstitution of the Polish Government and possible return to a more liberal democratic regime were envisaged there today in view of the expected resignation of Premier Felicjan Slawoj-Skladkowski.

Next Sunday Slawoj-Skladkowski will have rounded out two years in power, and will probably retire for personal reasons. Though his withdrawal will have no political significance, designation of his successor will raise significant questions for the future of Polish policy.

The Slawoj-Skladkowski Government had always been considered a transition cabinet which would eventually make way for a cabinet of the Camp of National Union. This ambitious organization, launched to rally the majority of the country’s political groups around the Government, does not at present appear able to take power.
