Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has sent a letter to the heads of the EU member states and its institutions attempting to offer an explanation of the Polish constitutional tribunal's ruling that stated Polish law was supreme to that of the EU (in breach of the EU's founding treaties). The letter comes days ahead of the European Council summit in Brussels, where the subject of the rule of law in Poland could prove one of the most controversial topics of discussion.

  • Morawiecki's letter (link here) states that "I wish to reassure you that Poland remains a loyal member of the European Union. A European Union that is an organization based on common Treaties, established by all Member States which have entrusted a number of competences to common institutions and have jointly regulated many areas of life through European law. [...] At the same time, however, I want to make you concerned – and draw your attention to a dangerous phenomenon that threatens the future of our Union. We ought to be anxious about the gradual transformation of the Union into an entity that would cease to be an alliance of free, equal and sovereign states, and instead become a single, centrally managed organism, run by institutions deprived of democratic control by the citizens of European countries."
  • The Polish ruling has drawn significant criticism from EU and member state leaders. Many liberals in the EU had already expressed reservations about Poland's commitment to 'EU values', and this latest development will only serve to sour relations further, risking a major breach between Brussels and Warsaw.
