President will not hold general, admiral nomination ceremony on Aug 15

Polish President Andrzej Duda has decided not to hold the usual general and admiral nomination ceremony on August 15, the Armed Forces Day, the National Security Bureau (BBN) has reported.

"In the President's view, the ongoing works and the lack of arrangements on a new system of leadership and command for Poland's Armed Forces are not conducive to a competence-based assessment of the candidates for general promotions, one that would take into account the army's demands", BBN stressed.
