WARSAW, Poland (AP) — An aide says that Poland’s prime minister is working on a court-ordered correction to the criticism he made of the previous ruling team, now in opposition.

An appeals court has ordered Premier Mateusz Morawiecki to read out and publish the text of the correction on state television and on private TVN by Friday night. Aide Tomasz Poreba said late Wednesday this is being done.

Morawiecki is to say his words were “untrue” when he recently told a rally ahead of the Oct. 21 local elections that over a period of 18 months his right-wing government has spent more on local roads than the previous team did during their eight years in power.

The leader of the opposition Civic Platform has demanded a public apology and Morawiecki’s resignation.
