New Provocation

Polish Lawmakers agreed to a host of new legislation

POLAND has provoked the European Union’s fury after approving a major overhaul of the judicial system in defiance of Brussels.

Lawmakers agreed to a host of new legislation that essentially gives Poland’s parliament de facto control over the selection of judges in the country.

Poland’s government has pushed a raft of controversial policies with the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party seeking to increase its control after a huge electoral success in 2015.

The nationalist and eurosceptic party wants to give justice ministers the power to hire and fire senior judges – something that has raised concerns among European Union chiefs.

The laws, if now agreed by the Senate and President Andrzej Duda, will heighten tensions with the EU which has threatened legal action over proposed reform that it says will subvert the rule of law.
