Senior PiS party politician Marek Suski went a step further, telling the commercial TVN24 news channel that "our coalition partners ended the coalition" when they broke ranks on the animal rights law.

"As of today, we have a minority government," he said, adding "our former coalition partners should be clearing their desks."

A PiS spokeswoman told the Onet news website that the "party leaders would meet next week to decide about the future of the government".

Kaczynski, who is known for his love of cats, has threatened to exclude his coalition partners from the government during a planned cabinet reshuffle or even call snap elections.

A possible minority PiS government would control 197 seats in the 460-seat lower house.

The controversial PiS-authored animal rights bill was adopted with the support of the liberal opposition, mustering 356 votes in favour, 75 against and 18 abstentions at an overnight session of parliament.
