POLAND: PM Tusk Wins MPs Support For New Austerity Reforms.


    Newly re-elected PM Donald Tusk Prime won a confidence vote for new tough reforms.
   A coalition won 234 votes in the 460-member lower chamber Sejm.
   Tusk's new measures would raise the retirement age in stages to 67...and eliminate tax and special pension perks for farmers, miners, policemen, firemen and priests. 
    Earlier this month...Tusk re-shuffled some of his cabinet...but left alone FinMin Rostowski and ForMin Sikorski.
