Who's the President?


In April Polish President Lech Kaczynski died in a tragic plane crash in Russia and according to the Polish Constitution the speaker of the Parliament's lower house, Bronislaw Komorowski, was made acting President. On Sunday Komorowski won the run off election to become Poland's President but will not be sworn into office for a few more weeks.

This morning Komorowski resigned his position as speaker in order to begin the official transition to his presidency but since he is not officially President yet, and no longer speaker of the lower house, current Senate Speaker Bogdan Borusewicz has automatically become the acting President of Poland. That is until the lower house of Parliment elects a new speaker who will in turn become acting President until Komorowski's offical swearing in.

If your still following me, that's a total of 3 acting Presidents for Poland in 1 day. And here I thought US politics were crazy.
