Poland’s prime minister has lashed out with accusations that EU institutions impede on the rights of its member nations following a ruling by the country’s Constitutional Tribunal that Warsaw’s laws reign supreme over Brussels’.
Mateusz Morawiecki, a Polish politician, declared Thursday that he would be speaking in front of the Polish parliament. “we are at a crucial moment, you could say at a crossroads in the EU’s history.”
The test of democracy is underway – will European nations be able to resist the usurpation of some EU institutions before their democratic rights are violated?
Morawiecki’s accusations come as he is due to appear before the European Parliament next week to defend Poland’s case after a landmark court verdict found Warsaw’s constitution took primacy over EU laws.
The inquiry, which had been requested by Morawiecki to determine whether Brussels could stop the country from reorganizing its judiciary, concluded last week that some areas of EU Treaty articles are incompatible with Warsaw’s laws and subordinate to Poland’s constitution.
