This article looks at the implication of the planned resignation of Polish Prime Minister Marek Belka effective May 5, 2005 for the incumbent Democratic Left Alliance(SLD). This resignation is consistent with Belka's plan to have an early schedule for the parliamentary election in Poland. His tenure had been under threat since February 2005, when it emerged that the SLD was preparing to remain in office for its full term. News of Belka's planned departure came after Economy Minister Jerzy Hausner announced his decision to quit his position in March 2005. Belka hopes that his resignation will bring forth the election that brings the Democratic Party into existence as a political force in the Sejm.
