The polls were carried out by the institute Homo Homini and disclose the fact that only 32 % of the polish population is in favor of entering the Eurozone. Due to the current financial crisis in Cyprus and trouble spots in other Southern European countries, the Euro does not appeal much.

Leader of the Law and Justice (PiS) opposition party, Mariusz Blaszczak cheered at the results of the poll. “We are pleased that Poles realistically asses what is going on in the eurozone,” he declared, stating that poor countries in the south of Europe which have accepted the euro have to face recession and an even worse than before economic situation. The Law and Justice (PiS) party has been arguing against giving up the zloty and had earlier called for a referendum on Poland adopting the Euro.

The centre-right Civic Platform-led coalition government still aspires joining the Eurozone but has not fixed a date yet until after the next general elections in 2015.
