Polish Prime Minister Re-Elected in Unopposed Vote - 2003-06-29

Poland's ruling social democrats have re-elected embattled Prime Minister Leszek Miller to a second term.

Mr. Miller received 625 votes Sunday from a possible 850 delegates of the Democratic Left Alliance. The prime minister was running unopposed.

Mr. Miller's government is unpopular due to Poland's high unemployment rate and a corruption scandal surrounding the ruling party.

Before the vote, Mr. Miller said his top priority is working towards improving Poland's economy. He also acknowledged that allegations of corruption are hurting the government's popularity and vowed to work to regain people's trust.
