Answering a question during a media interview, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Tuesday evening that Jarosław Kaczyński, leader of Poland’s ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party, would be an “excellent” head of government.

He added: "I'm convinced that [Kaczyński] would be a better prime minister."

Morawiecki told private broadcaster TVN24 in the interview that his ruling conservative party has yet to decide who will head the government if Law and Justice wins October’s parliamentary elections.

"First we must win these elections," Morawiecki said.

"But if Law and Justice wins and has a parliamentary majority, which I hope will happen ... then the political leadership will make the decision in due time," he added.

When asked if this means the party has no candidate for prime minister for now, Morawiecki said: "For the time being there is no decision as to what will happen after the elections."

Poles will vote in parliamentary elections on October 13.

After four years in power, Morawiecki's governing Law and Justice party is bidding for a second term following a landslide win in 2015.

As election day approaches, the country's ruling conservatives are ahead in the opinion polls, while the opposition is divided into three separate camps.

Kaczyński served as prime minister from July 2006 to November 2007.
