Polish President & nation’s top security officials die in plane crash

leave a comment »

Its old news by now, but in case you haven’t heard over the weekend, Polish President Lech Kaczynski’s airplane crashed over the weekend, taking his life as well as the lives of several top officials.

Poland has declared today as an official day of mourning and will hold a special election within 60 days to replace Kaczynski. The cause of the crash has yet to be determined, however the flight was diverted to an unintended route to avoid inclement weather.

In Poland, the president isn’t as crucial to the nation’s day-to-day activity as one is in the United States. While he serves a role greater than just a figurehead, the prime minister and parliament serve greater roles in running the government.
