Just a few days before the major reshuffle, the supervisory board of the Polish company was also reconstituted. The reason for the massive personnel changes is the change of government in Poland – national-conservative PiS party was voted out of office in the parliamentary elections in October 2023. Since then, the new Polish head of government Donald Tusk and his liberal-conservative Civic Coalition (KO) have been endeavouring to fill the key positions in the state-controlled industrial groups. Former Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and his PiS party (with which President Andrzej Duda is also affiliated) are accused of having cobbled influential and highly remunerated management positions in the economy to politically compliant followers, thereby fuelling nepotism and corruption.
