Poland's central bank leaves rates unchanged, as expected

WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland's central bank on Wednesday kept its benchmark interest rate at a record low of 1.5%, in line with the expectations of analysts polled by Reuters.

The central bank, which ended an easing cycle in March 2015, also kept its lombard rate flat at 2.50%, the deposit rate at 0.50% and the rediscount rate at 1.75%.

The bank's rate-setting Monetary Policy Council will hold a news conference at 1400 GMT.
