Upping retirement age was a mistake: Polish opposition leader

The leader of Poland’s opposition Civic Platform (PO) admitted on Friday that his party made a mistake while in government by raising the retirement age.

Grzegorz Schetyna was speaking as he launched a two-day gathering in Warsaw of the Civic Coalition, an alliance of opposition groups, amid work to hammer out a platform in the run-up to Poland’s autumn parliamentary elections.

Schetyna said: "If someone asks about the retirement age, the famous 67 years, we admit it was a mistake. This could have been done on a voluntary basis and through encouragement rather than by forcing people" to retire at an older age.

After coming to power in late 2015, Poland’s conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party reversed an unpopular reform by the previous Civic Platform-led government that would have ultimately increased the retirement age to 67 for both men and women.
