POLISH PREMIER URGED TO RESIGN

Pressure on Poland's Prime Minister Jan Olszewski to resign increased yesterday when the leader of the main party in the ruling coalition called for a new government.

Centre Agreement Party chairman Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the driving force behind the formation of Mr. Olszewski's center-right minority government last December, said the Cabinet's chances of survival were minimal.

Since its creation, Olszewski's government has been struggling to hold its own in parliament, where 29 parties are represented. It has failed to propose any major reform legislation and has yet to win parliament's approval for its deficit budget proposal.

The Cabinet has also been in conflict with President Lech Walesa, who has repeatedly said he wants a stronger government and even named candidates to replace Olszewski.
