Manfred Weber MEP, Chairman of the EPP Group in the European Parliament, and Esteban González Pons MEP, EPP Group Vice-Chairman in charge of Legal and Home Affairs, reacted today to the vote on the reform of the judiciary which took place in the lower Chamber of the Polish Parliament, the Sejm, on Wednesday.

“The hasty vote in the Polish Sejm on the reform of the judiciary is a turning point for Poland. By changing the law, the PiS is turning its back for good on the independence of the judiciary. A red line was crossed yesterday. With this vote, the PiS is putting an end to the rule of law and democracy in Poland and leaving the European community of values. We call on the Polish government to drop this reform plan. We also call on the European Commission and the governments of the EU Member States to react to this severe violation of EU fundamental values and to take measures against the Polish government”.
