WARSAW (Reuters) – Polish Finance Minister Mateusz Morawiecki was sworn in by President Andrzej Duda as the country’s new prime minister on Monday, replacing Beata Szydlo, who became a Deputy Prime minister.

The ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party sacked the popular Szydlo last week in a bid to improve Poland’s image abroad and prepare the conservatives for a series of upcoming elections.
