Glapinski's Case Remains Under Scrutiny, Constitutional Tribunal To Rule On EU Treaties

  • Headlines surrounding the potential for the pro-EU parliamentary majority prosecuting NBP Governor Adam Glapinski continue to do the rounds after the central bank's management board held a press conference on the matter. A new RMF FM/DGP opinion poll showed that 54% of respondents wanted to see Glapinski brought to the State Tribunal, which provides a clear incentive for the coalition. However, pro-EU parties will weigh these considerations against legal, economic and political risks signalled in our earlier coverage.
  • RMF FM reported that the pro-EU coalition is looking to change parliamentary rules of procedure, possibly as soon as on Wednesday, to facilitate the appointment of Donald Tusk to the position of a Prime Minister expected next week. The current regulations have been deemed outdated in terms of certain technical aspects. They have never been tested - the use of the so-called "second constitutional step" (i.e. nomination by parliament) of appointing the executive is unprecedented in Poland's modern history.
  • The Constitutional Tribunal is expected to announce its verdict on the constitutionality of parts of EU treaties allowing to impose financial penalties on member states. The Tribunal was due to issue its ruling a week ago, but the announcement has been postponed due to one justice being on sick leave. The verdict is due at 10:00GMT/11:00CET.
