Polish military may call up any able bodied man

Poland has expanded the scope of mobilisation in peacetime to reservists with no previous military experience.
Could be anyone?
Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz signed on Tuesday an executive order expanding the scope of drafting men for military exercises.
Under the order, the government may draft all men deemed capable of military service, including those who have no prior experience of military service. Previously, only reservists with a stint in the forces could be called up.
Poland abandoned conscription in the late 1990s, meaning that only men in their late 30s and older are likely to have served in the army - except those who have volunteered to do so since. (an)
