The coming parliamentary elections may return to power former PM J. Kaczyński. This will not disturb moderate growth continuing in 2016. But the monetary policy will change next year, upon the expiry of the mandate of the present Chair of the National Bank. Whether the eventual innovations in the fiscal, social and systemic policies will be radical remains to be seen. Hence their true impact on performance in 2017 (and beyond) is rather hard to predict at present.
