PARIS, 22 Oct – French President Emmanuel Macron said the Polish government should take concrete action to resolve the dispute with the EU over the rule of law.
“The issue that worries us about Poland is the issue of the independence of its judicial system … We discussed this topic in detail. We agree to conduct an in-depth dialogue and work that will allow us to resolve the problems related to the Polish issue. We expect from the Polish government concrete actions to avoid our use of pressure measures, “- said Macron at a press conference following the EU summit.
Earlier, the Constitutional Court of Poland, in response to a request from Prime Minister Morawiecki, confirmed that some provisions of the common European treaties contradict the constitution of the republic. This happened against the backdrop of several verdicts of the EU Court, which condemned the actions of Poland, including for non-compliance with the principle of independence of the judiciary. The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, instructed to study the decision of the Polish Constitutional Court in order to take further measures.
