Jerzy Hausner quits SLD

Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister Jerzy Hausner has quit the ruling SLD party.

This is another rough blow to the SLD. Hausner was one of their only remaining members with integrity. His famous "Hausner Plan" has been going nowhere -- no thanks to the SLD.

The Hausner Plan is a set of legislation designed to modernize and streamline the Polish economy. It has wide support from business leaders, but so far, every measure has been watered-down to the point of irrelevance.

Which is why Citizen's Platform will run the table in June or Autumn, whenever the SLD finally decides is the best time to get beaten.
