The European Union's executive arm gave Poland until August 16 to comply with a ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) that Poland's system for disciplining judges violates EU law and should be suspended. According to the EU, the system is being used to exert political control over rulings.

“We will dissolve the Disciplinary Chamber as it currently operates and in this way the subject of the dispute will disappear,” Kaczyński told state news agency PAP in an interview on Saturday.

But he added that he does not accept “such rulings as they definitely go beyond the (EU) treaties”, thus expanding the judicial power of the bloc’s courts.

Kaczyński said that first draft laws on a new disciplinary regime will be drawn up by September and put forward by the government.

Last month, Polish Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro said that the ruling by the EU’s top court that the Polish system for disciplining judges contravenes the bloc's laws “smacks of colonial thinking.”

Ziobro told reporters the ruling had been handed down “at the behest of the European Commission,” the EU's executive arm, amid a long-standing feud over alleged rule-of-law breaches between Brussels and Warsaw.

Also in July, Poland's Constitutional Tribunal ruled that interim measures imposed by the EU’s top court on the Polish justice system.
