The Supervisory Board at the Polish public broadcaster TVP has replaced its entire board, in doing so relieving the president Piotr Farfal of his duties.

Wirtualne Media reports that Farfal has been replaced by Boguslaw Szwedo.

However, Farfal has refused to accept his dismissal and Szwedo will apparently not be allowed to take up his new post today (September 21) at TVPís Warsaw headquarters.
