Polish officials have repeatedly postponed the date of the country’s entry into the Eurozone. They announced the intention to join the monetary union first in January 2012 and then in 2014, 2015 and 2016, but have not yet implemented the idea into practice.
"Poland should hold a referendum on the entry into the Eurozone […] Decision to abandon the domestic currency must be a decision of the nation," DWN quoted Poland’s presidential foreign policy adviser Krzysztof Szczerski.
Duda is well known as a conservative euroskeptic. He repeatedly stated that the introduction of the euro instead of the national currency — zloty — is a premature step.
“Until we earn as much they do in Western Europe, we can forget about it," he said.
