Poland Under Fire For Challenging EU Law

A recent decision by the Polish Constitutional Court calls into question and threatens the foundations of the European Union, European Commission (EC) President Ursula von der Leyen said today in the European Parliament. According to her, the Commission must protect European citizens wherever they live and will therefore act against Poland.

According to its boss, the EU executive has several different tools at its disposal, but the commission is still evaluating which of them to use.

The majority of Poles want to stay in the European Union and the Polish government is part of this pro-European majority, said its president Mateusz Morawiecki in the European Parliament on Monday. But he said Poles are increasingly concerned about the change in the EU. The European institutions approach different European states in different ways, says the Polish Prime Minister.

“We cannot remain silent when our country is attacked in an unfair way,” Morawiecki told the European Parliament.
