Polish opposition wants parliament vote against government

Poland's main opposition party is seeking a parliamentary vote against the conservative government, saying it is "demolishing" the country and wants to bring it out of the European Union.

Civic Platform's leader in parliament, Slawomir Neumann, said that regardless of the vote's chances, the debate would expose what he called the harmful policies of the 17-months-old government.

Leaders of the pro-EU Civic Platform said Friday they will request a so-called constructive vote of no-confidence early next week. In theory, the vote could overturn the government of Prime Minister Beata Szydlo, but the ruling party holds has a majority of 234 seats out of 460. It was not clear whether the vote could be held during a parliament session starting Wednesday.
