Political storm in Poland as new government sparks 'coup' claims

On November 9, 2015, Jaroslaw Kaczynski (R), the leader of the conservative Law and Justice party, with Prime Minister Beata Szydlo after she announced members of her new cabinet in WarsawPoland’s new conservative government has lost no time in seeking to take control of the EU country’s top court and secret services, sparking claims of a “coup” by the vanquished liberal opposition. The highly contested moves by the eurosceptic Law and Justice (PiS) party, hard on the heels of winning a general election on October 25, risk reducing the Constitutional Court and secret services to political tools, analysts say. Prime Minister Beata Szydlo, whose PiS party brought an end to eight years of governance by their liberal rivals, on Thursday replaced the country’s four intelligence and counter-espionage chiefs.
