Polish Prime Minister Ready to Face EU Sanctions

After warnings by the European Commission to trigger sanctions based on the rule of law procedure, Poland’s new prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, indicated at that he will stay on a collision course with the EU. "From the start of such an unfair procedure for us, until it ends, we will certainly talk to our partners," he said. The rule of law process would begin with a formal warning that Poland was in breach of EU values. It could lead to the so-called Article 7 procedure and the suspension of Poland's voting rights in the EU Council.
