WARSAW - Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, whose coalition has a majority in parliament, said on Thursday he would ask for a vote of confidence on Friday to show support for his policies.

"I'm taking this risk intentionally because I think that only a government with an unambiguous majority can govern," Tusk said at a briefing, adding that he also would give a speech in tandem with requesting the confidence vote.

The vote would be mostly symbolic since Tusk's coalition has a four-seat majority in the 460-seat lower chamber.
