 East European Constitutional Review
For Leszek Miller, the 45-year-old son of a single mother who spent her life as a worker in Zyrardow, a bleak industrial town on the outskirts of Warsaw, the way to the top was paved with adversity.
And though these particular figures have not been given state positions, the current prime minister, Leszek Miller, was a member of Jaruzelski's politburo and, to date, has refused to acknowledge any feeling he might have that there is a contradiction between his past and present careers.
Leszek Miller let it be known that he would not govern with less than half the seats in parliament; the discontent with the current government was so deep and widespread that it seemed implausible that his party would fail to score even at that high threshold.

 Warsaw Voice - Leszek Miller's Got a Grandkid, Too
Miller is working for his place in history, where he wants to find himself as the man who eradicated, once and for all, any remnants of socialist, wasteful social policy from Poland's free-market economy, as a pioneer of reducing taxes and the businessmen's Hammurabi granting them a code of economic freedom.
But, in the short term, Miller's actions are meeting with a lack of understanding and aversion on the part of the left's traditional electorate, and to gain the support of leftist politicians there had to be some arm-twisting and sticking of pins under fingernails.
So, resorting to unexpected tactical ploys, Miller is able to show that despite falling ratings, he is the one and only true boss in the government camp.

 Anne Applebaum -- Slippery Pole
Miller hasn't ended the contract yet, possibly because the issue has become very controversial; he's biding his time.
But Miller's links with Bartimpex, and with its owner, Alexander Gudzowaty the closest thing Poland has to a Russian oligarch (Gudzowaty is said to own Gucci's former house on the Riviera) are still intact.
But, given that their past enthusiasm for capitalism was limited, it is also perhaps no surprise that Miller's government has, in a few short months, already started to reverse many of the gains of the past decade.

Miller told the business daily newspaper Rzeczpospolita on Saturday that if coalition talks go smoothly, an SLD-led cabinet could be formed soon after the resignation of outgoing Prime Minister Jerzy Buzek, due on October 19.

Miller reiterated that presidential adviser Marek Belka, seen by investors as the guarantor of sound economic policies, would remain the SLD's candidate for finance minister, despite his controversial statements just before the elections.
