The article discusses the political condition in Poland and how it affects the country's economy. Polish President Lech Kaczynski dismissed Deputy Prime Minister Andrzej Lepper and his Self-Defense party from government because Lepper's budget demands threaten the country's 2007 budget. Since the September 2006 election, different political parties are trying to garner power at all costs. Due to the instability of Poland's government, progress on 2008 budget and reforms has been set aside.
