European Commission: Tusk became prime minister, the rule of law is back

The European Commission (EC) decided to end the procedure under Art. 7 of the EU Treaty towards Poland. In the opinion of the European Commission, there is no longer an obvious violation of the rule of law in Poland.

"The Commission believes that there is no longer a clear breach of the rule of law in Poland and has therefore withdrawn its proposal that triggered this procedure in 2017," – announced EC spokesman Eric Mamer after the commissioners' meeting.

And as he emphasized, calling for a meeting of European affairs ministers: "today the formalities of something that was announced last week, were completed." The Vice-President of the European Commission, Viera Jourova, who took part in the event, informed about the Commission's new, positive assessment of the state of the rule of law in Poland.

The basis for closing the procedure, which has been ongoing for over six years, was the nine-point plan of the Minister of Justice, Adam Bodnar, presented to the member states and the European Commission in February this year. It concerned, among others, reform of the National Council of the Judiciary and separation of the positions of the Minister of Justice and the Prosecutor General. Although the changes planned by Bodnar did not enter into force, the European Commission actually closed the procedure. Because... in their opinion, there is no longer a clear violation of the rule of law in Poland. Let's repeat that: none of the proposals were actually legally implemented. What Mr. Bodnar is doing though is violating Polish constitution with literally every action he takes. 

PN: EC is not even trying to hide that the fight with precious Polish government was not about law or justice but about blocking its every move and ultimately removing it from power. They needed that to force through legal changes that convert the Europen Union into a socialist state run by the elites, not much different than the Soviet Union 2.0.
