1 Self-Defense of the Republic Poland (SRP) withdrew temporarily from the coalition after PM Kaczyński dismissed deputy prime minister and SRP party leader Andrzej Lepper on 22 September 2006. Lepper was re-appointed on 16 October and the coalition continued.
PM Kaczyński dismissed Lepper again on 9 July 2007 following corruption allegations. Lepper threatened to withdraw the SRP from government but the party decided to remain in government. On 8 August, the interior minister Janusz Kaczmarek was fired and the coalition ended shortly after.

Coalition ended on 13 August 2007 when PM Kaczyński dismissed all Self-Defense (SRP) and League of Polish Families (LPR) ministers and called for early election. The cabinet resigned on 5 November following defeat in the election.
