WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland's President Andrzej Duda designated Finance Minister Mateusz Morawiecki as the country's new prime minister after Beata Szydlo tendered her resignation.

The ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party decided on Thursday to swap Szydlo for Morawiecki as they gear up for a series of elections due in the next three years.
