LUBIN, Poland Feb 3 (Reuters) - The supervisory board at Europe's No.2 copper producer, Polish KGHM, dismissed long-serving Chief Executive Herbert Wirth, he said on Wednesday, as Polish state companies continued to replace their management after a parliamentary election.

KGHM follows in the footsteps of Polish oil refiner PKN Orlen, Warsaw bourse, as well as almost all major state-run energy producers, which have fired executives after Poland's new government, formed by the conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party, came into power in October.

"All four of us were dismissed," Wirth told reporters, referring to himself and three management board members. (Reporting by Wojciech Zurawski; Writing by Adrian Krajewski and Wiktor Szary, editing by David Evans)
