Polish Supreme Court says the country might have to leave the EU TIMES
The left-leaning Polish Supreme Court has warned that the country could have to leave the European Union over its judicial reform proposals: The new proposals that have been put forth by Poland’s ruling national-conservative Law & Justice Party are said to tighten the disciplinary responsibility of judges while changing the rules for choosing the first president of the Supreme Court, Do Rzeczy reports.
“The ruling party says changes to the law are needed to fight corruption and reform the judicial system, which, he says, is still haunted by the era of communism: But the EU has accused PiS of politicising the judiciary since it came to power in 2015,” writes the BBC.
A draft of the proposal that was presented to the Polish parliament on Thursday has been criticized by the European Union as an attempt by the Law & Justice party to “politicize the judiciary for their own gain” Despite all of this, support for the European Union in Poland is sky-high. Earlier this year in March, a poll conducted by CBOS revealed that 91% of Poles who were surveyed supported being in the EU, with 85% believing membership in the bloc had helped to boost the economy.
