Ursula von der Leyen threatens action, saying she’ll enforce EU legislation in Poland with “all her powers.”

Ms Von der Leyen’s threat comes after Poland’s highest court declared parts of EU treaties illegal.

The German government has backed the Commission in taking any necessary action against Warsaw after Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal determined that the country’s constitution trumps some EU laws.

In other situations, the CJEU “violates the principle of rule of law,” the Polish court ruled. Moreover, the courts held that certain CJEU judgements did not supersede Polish law. Angry MEPs accused Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki of leading his country “to Polexit.”

Clément Beaune, Minister of European Affairs of France, called the Polish verdict an “attack on the European Union”. Mr Beaune also mentioned Polexit, claiming Poland was preparing for a “de facto exit” from the EU.

“I am deeply concerned by yesterday’s ruling of the Polish Constitutional Tribunal,” Ms Von der Leyen said.

“I have instructed the Commission’s services to analyse it thoroughly and swiftly. On this basis, we will decide on next steps.”

“We will uphold the founding principles of our Union’s legal order.

“Our 450 million Europeans rely on this … We will use all the powers that we have under the treaties to ensure this.”

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of Law and Justice (PiS), Poland’s largest party, praised the decision. His ruling effectively means “Poland is not a sovereign state.”

Despite Germany’s backing for the Commission’s probable action against Poland, there are no indications of these actions.

The Commission and Poland have been at odds for months. The Commission had proposed a daily punishment to the court last month after Poland failed to suspend a disciplinary body for judges.

If this daily punishment is enacted, it will be withheld from Poland’s EU budget payments. Recent comments by EU political figures show that they fully support whatever actions are adopted.

“The Commission has our full support for its task of enforcing European law throughout the EU,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Friday.

“EU citizens as well as companies doing business in Poland need the legal certainty that EU rules, including rulings of the European Court of Justice, are fully applied in Poland,” Ms Von der Leyen added.

  1. So glad to see that Poland is considered to be a sovereign stat as Scotland would be in the unlikely event of the firstly leaving the UK and secondly being accepted BY THE eu.

  2. Here the stupid blasted woman goes again, threatening legal action to a sovereign nation. Supposed EU law is not sovereign above the sovereign law of the country. The cesspit is not even a country and has absolutely no sovereignty on anything. The cesspit think they are sovereign above every member state, They cannot see the reality of it, a sovereign nation is above the cesspit, always has been and always will be, the cesspit is nothing other than a trading bloc, it is nothing. No sovereignty, no assets, it produces nothing, 9it is exactly as its title suggests, a union, a union of 27 members.

    Despite all these fancy titles, commissioner for this that and everything else, president of this that and everything else, it remains the fact, in reality they are nothing, they are no better than the citizens of the countries that make up the union. Although, witnessing the way they behave, I would put it forward that the citizens of the countries that make up the bloc, are far more intelligent and far better people that this rabble of nothings.
