The Polish Economy and Interim Management Assignments

In Poland, the average duration of interim management assignments is 11.5 months.

The Polish economy has been growing solidly in recent years, but investors worry about weak policy consistency and the outsized role of state-controlled companies in the economy.

EU Workers also question whether the government is doing enough to prevent a buildup of debt. The constitution and laws ensure free and fair elections, but critics say that legal changes have increased the potential for political influence over the electoral commission (PKKW), which oversees the election process. Lawmakers and ruling party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski have used the commission to promote his own electoral ambitions, while the PKKW itself is dominated by judges appointed by court orders—sparking controversy over its independence.

On the international stage, Poland has been at odds with the European Union over the disciplinary chamber for judges. The ECJ has ordered the Disciplinary Chamber to be independent from parliament and executive control, but in July 2021, the Constitutional Tribunal (TK) overruled this decision, expanding on an earlier judgment that the ECJ had ignored.

In a local controversy, the government has been accused of politicizing fuel prices by allowing state-dominated energy conglomerate PKN Orlen to manipulate prices in an attempt to gain voter support before a general election this year. The company has defended its pricing decisions as justified by high international oil prices, but opponents accuse the government of using the company to advance political goals. The issue has been further muddied by signs that regional trends could be at play, with Hungary and the Czech Republic both raising diesel excise duties in recent weeks.
