RYBNIK, Poland, Sept 5 Ewa Kopacz, the speaker
of Poland's parliament, is the natural candidate to take over
leadership of the ruling Civic Platform Party, Polish Prime
Minister Donald Tusk said on Friday.
Tusk is the party leader but will give up that post when he
moves to Brussels to become president of the European Council.
Tusk said it was up to the president and the parliament, where
Civic Platform is the biggest party, to decide who would be the
next prime minister.
