Poland’s new ruling party is leading a dramatic rightward shift in policy. So why are the changes creating tension with the European Union?
EU takes unprecedented step against Poland over rule of law
“The European Commission announced on Sunday (3 January) that it would discuss the state of the rule of law in Poland after the country’s hard-right government pushed through changes to the judiciary and media over the Christmas break.”
Poland’s constitutional crisis goes international
“Poland’s newly elected government brushed aside opposition complaints, large street demonstrations and rising international concern to push through legislation this week that could hobble the country’s highest constitutional court.”
On the naughty step
“POLAND is in trouble with Brussels.”
Polish press invokes Nazi imagery as war of words with EU heats up
“Relations between Brussels and Poland’s hardline Eurosceptic government have deteriorated further after a Polish magazine published a cover portraying five leading EU politicians – including the German chancellor, Angela Merkel – in Nazi uniforms beneath the headline These people want to control Poland again.”
