    The Polish parliament, by a majority vote on Wednesday, expressed confidence in the country's government led by Mateusz Morawiecki, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

    Earlier in the day, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki addressed the country's parliament, the Sejm, requesting a vote of confidence to maintain the current political course.

    The prime minister clarified that he needed the ballot so that the government "could continue its reforms."

    Polish opposition has earlier submitted a no confidence motion over a graft scandal in a financial audit body. The parliament is expected to vote on the opposition's proposal on Friday.
