Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki warned fellow EU leaders that the EU risked unravelling if there was no “democratic control” over its institutions.
Poland’s Constitutional Court challenged the primacy of EU law, stating that parts of the EU treaties were “incompatible” with Poland’s constitution.
Morawiecki said that the primacy of EU law was “not unlimited” and that “no sovereign state” could say otherwise.
The Polish prime minister said, “today we are dealing with a very dangerous phenomenon whereby various European Union institutions usurp powers they do not have under the treaties and impose their will on member states.”
Morawiecki also warned the EU was becoming “an entity that would cease to be an alliance of free, equal, and sovereign states – and become one, centrally managed organism”.
However, Morawiecki “reassured” EU leaders that “Poland remains a loyal member of the European Union.”
