Polexit an ‘absurd’ idea: Polish foreign minister

The prospect of Poland leaving the EU is “completely absurd”, Poland’s Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau has said.

In an interview with public broadcaster Polish Radio on Tuesday, Rau said that the possibility of the Polish government vetoing the EU budget sparked a “hysterical” reaction by the country’s opposition.

Some opposition members have suggested that Poland might be heading towards leaving the bloc.

According to Rau, a Polexit is “absolutely absurd. Never has any significant political group in Poland formulated such a postulate, and the United Right [Poland’s ruling conservative alliance] would be the last one to try to think or conduct a discourse in these terms,” he said.

Last week, Poland’s prime minister warned that his country could veto the European Union's 2021-2027 budget over plans to tie access to funds from Brussels with respect for the rule of law.

At a meeting in Brussels last Monday, ambassadors from EU governments by a majority of votes approved a mechanism to make the pay-out of the bloc’s funds conditional on member states’ adherence to the rule of law, a move that has irritated Warsaw.

Poland and Hungary have denied EU accusations of violating democratic principles and undermining the independence of their courts.
