Beata Szydlo, leader of Poland’s new ruling party, the right-wing eurosceptic Law and Justice Party (PiS) who will become the country's prime minister, presented the new cabinet of Poland.

WARSAW (Sputnik) – Poland’s new ruling party, the right-wing eurosceptic Law and Justice Party (PiS), unveiled Monday its new cabinet with party deputy leader Beata Szydlo as prime minister.

"There is no dispute among us. Beata Szydlo will present the composition of the government," PiS leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski said at a press conference following the party's political committee deliberations.

Szydlo, designated to replace Ewa Kopacz as Polish Prime Minister later in the month, tapped Witold Waszczykowski as the next foreign minister, Antoni Macierewicz as national defense minister, and Mariusz Blaszczak as interior minister.
