The European Union quarrels with Poland and Hungary


Warsaw considers unreasonable claims of European Commission to her judicial reform, for non-execution of requirements she can be debarred from voting in the EU. Meanwhile the European Parliament has voted on September 12 for imposition of sanctions against Budapest for violation "rules and values of the EU" the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland.

The Foreign Ministry of the country protests against claims to judicial reform, noting that this internal affair of Poland. The European Commission considers that the new law which reduces the maximum age of judges of the Supreme Court undermines the principle of independence of judicial authorities. Not the really considerable, at first sight, amendment on age and increase in number of judges from 80 to 120 people can replace up to 40% of the current structure of the Supreme Court. As a result Warsaw can lose the right to vote in the EU. Many consider that thus the ruling party "Right and justice" of Jaroslaw Kaczynski wants to crush judicial system under itself, the observer of the Rzeczpospolita edition Pyotr Endroshchik says: "It already lasts two years.

Therefore as in case of Hungary it won't be accepted as Poland will be against, and in case of Poland it can't be accepted as against there will be both Hungary, and some other countries. Therefore it is about some more difficult and weak options of behavior of the EU.
