Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki in Budapest raised the topic of current events in Warsaw focused on the judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal. – The opposition is trying to insinuate that we want to weaken Poland and the European Union by leaving the EU – he said. At the same time, he repeated the government’s narrative, according to which the judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal on the incompatibility of the EU treaties with the constitution does not differ from the decisions of the constitutional courts of other countries. The editorial office of Konkret24 explained why such a message is false.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki he flew to Budapest on Tuesday to take part in the meeting of the heads of government of the Visegrad Group countries and the Egyptian President Abd el-Fatah es-Sisi present in Budapest. The meeting is organized under the Hungarian V4 presidency, which began on July 1 and will last until June 30, 2022.
In the Hungarian capital, the prime minister spoke about the events surrounding the pro-EU demonstrations in Poland, which began after the judgment of the Constitutional Court. Last week he said that some provisions of the Treaty on European Union are inconsistent with the constitution. At demonstrations in many Polish cities, the desire to stay in the Community was mainly expressed.
Manifestations after the judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal
– Our esteemed opposition is trying to insinuate to us that we want to weaken Poland and the European Union by leaving the Union. This is obviously not only fake news, it is something even worse, it is simply a lie to weaken the European Union – said Morawiecki.
According to the prime minister, the “lie is based on a completely wrong assumption that people cannot read the judgments of the constitutional courts of other Member States, which were very similar to the judgments handed down in the Polish Constitutional Tribunal.”
– But we will emphasize it and I am glad that more and more Western politicians, Western media, including presidential candidates, not only one in France in these very important elections that are approaching, notice what we are saying out loud and what the Tribunal The constitutional one in Poland has emphasized many times – he said.
A right-wing journalist and a candidate for president of France, among others, wrote flatteringly about the judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal Eric Zemmourand also the head of the extreme-right National Union Marine Le Pen.
