POLAND / GERMANY : PM Tusk Sacks Another Cabinet Member; Gowin Goes.
PM Donald Tusk wielded his hatchet again...firing conservative Justice Minister Jaroslaw Gowin.
They apparently disagreed about trade in embryos with German scientists.
2 weeks ago...Tusk fired Treasury Minister Mikolaj Budzanowski...for failing to inform him about an agreement with Russian giant Gazprom to build a pipeline thru Poland.
Budzanowski was also criticized for overseeing troubled state-owned LOT airline.
Tusk's coalition holds a slim 5 seat majority in Poland's lower house.
