The decision of the Constitutional Tribunal on the incompatibility of some provisions of the Treaty on European Union with Polish law is an attack on the European Union – assessed on Friday the French Minister for European Affairs, Clement Beaune.
The full Constitutional Tribunal, chaired by President Julia Przyłębska, continued the hearing on Thursday, initiated by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s motion from the end of March, regarding the constitutionality of some of the provisions of the Treaty on European Union. The Constitutional Tribunal decided that some of the EU regulations asked by the head of government were inconsistent with the constitution.
The allegations contained in the application of the prime minister, which is nearly 130 pages long, boiled down to, inter alia, the question of the compliance with the Polish constitution of the principle of primacy of European Union law and the principle of sincere cooperation between the Union and its member states.
The Court’s decision is an “attack on the European Union”, “the risk of leaving the Union”
In the opinion of the Minister for European Affairs of France, Clement Beaune, the decision of the Constitutional Tribunal is “an attack on the European Union”. – This is very serious. In fact, there is a risk of exit [Polski – red.] from the European Union – said Beaune in an interview with BFM TV. As he added, he does not wish Poland to leave the Community.
According to Beaune, the decision of the Constitutional Tribunal on Thursday may have an impact on payments from the EU Reconstruction Fund for Poland.
