WARSAW, Poland – The Polish president is swearing in a reshuffled government under new prime minister Ewa Kopacz.
Kopacz replaces Donald Tusk, who was recently chosen to head the European Council.
The new government is set to continue the policies of Tusk's center-right party Civic Platform. However, it will only govern for a year, and much of its efforts are expected to be geared toward winning re-election.
So far Kopacz has suggested she will not take a strong stance toward Russia, something underlined by the departure of Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski, a strong voice internationally against Moscow's aggressions in Ukraine.
Kopacz's government faces a vote of confidence in parliament Oct. 1, but it is expected to pass since the governing coalition enjoys a majority — albeit a slim one.
