According to the newspaper's findings, the ruling coalition has chosen a new candidate. The final decision may be made next week.

At the beginning of January this year. Prime Minister Donald Tusk dismissed, at the request of the Minister of Family, Labor and Social Policy Agnieszka Dziemianowicz-Bąk, and the president of the Social Insurance Institution, Gertruda Uścińska. She has managed the Social Insurance Institution since February 2016.

According to information confirmed by several independent sources, at the end of last week, after long negotiations, the ruling coalition chose another candidate – Zbigniew Derdziuk,” the newspaper writes.

“PB” informants emphasize that the compromise was very difficult to achieve, as evidenced by, among others, a period of interregnum in ZUS lasting over three months.

The compromise – according to the daily – was to be reached after long personnel negotiations. The newspaper informs that until the new president is officially appointed, “theoretically anything can still happen.”

“PB” reports that Zbigniew Derdziuk refused to comment.

“The information about the new candidate for president is kept secret – no formal documents have been created. The next ZUS supervisory board is convened on April 23 and the new candidate will probably be approved at this meeting,” the newspaper announces.
