The Polish Constitutional Court decides that the Magna Carta takes precedence over EU law

The Polish Constitutional Court ruled this Thursday that the country’s Magna Carta takes precedence over EU law, which leaves the different fronts with Brussels open and Warsaw opens the door to not obeying the judgments of the European judiciary.

At the request of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, the Constitutional Court ruled after the judgment was postponed up to three times after the EU Court of Justice (TEU) ruled that the judicial reforms initiated by the government led to a violation of Community law.

In this way, the highest Polish court ruled that some of the Community regulations are incompatible with the Polish Constitution, reports the ‘Rzeczpospolita’.

In mid-July, the TUE questioned some of the reforms promoted by the Law and Justice Party (PiS) government, particularly the disciplinary regime for judges.

Tensions between Warsaw and Brussels have increased in recent months, with the PiS even suggesting the possibility of “drastic” measures, given the escalating political pulse, suggesting the country’s continuity within the EU, including the disbursement of the 23,900 planned in the recovery plan Million euros after the pandemic.
