Main Polish opposition party expels 3 key members

Poland's main opposition party, Law and Justice, has expelled three prominent members who had called for more openness from leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski.
The three include Zbigniew Ziobro, a former justice minister long considered a rising star in the party.
After elections on Oct. 9 that failed to return the party to power, Ziobro called for an open debate on an outcome disappointing to a party that governed from 2005-2007. He also called for more democracy and openness within the party _ comments seen as criticism of Kaczynski.
Party spokesman Adam Hofman said the party voted by a large majority at a meeting Friday evening to expel Ziobro and two of his supporters, Jacek Kurski and Tadeusz Cymanski.
