Talks are continuing and but real decisions concerning the upcoming government reshuffle are yet to be made, Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki told the Polsat News private broadcaster on Friday after the ruling United Right camp's meeting earlier in the day.

According to Morawiecki, the Friday meeting was devoted to the reshuffle, whose aim was to streamline governing.

After the change, the government should be more "dynamic," decision-making should be "swift" and investment processes should be "easier," Morawiecki said.

"Personal matters are a secondary issue," he added.

The prime minister said there was no decision yet about any potential reduction in the number of ministries.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of Law and Justice (PiS), the United Right's backbone party, said in mid-July that "there will certainly be personal changes" and that the structure of the government will also change. At that time, Kaczynski declared that "the prime minister stays." (PAP)
