Poland mulls using EU veto power: gov't spokesman

27.10.2021 20:15
Poland is considering using its veto power in the European Council to block some EU initiatives it opposes, government spokesman Piotr Müller has said, amid a dispute over access to the bloc's post-pandemic recovery funds.

When asked in an interview with public broadcaster Polish Radio on Wednesday when Poland could expect to receive its first money from the EU's recovery fund, Müller replied that the decision was up to the 27-nation bloc's executive, the European Commission.

“Unfortunately, the European Commission has recently taken action that has no legal basis, namely it froze the approval of the [Polish] National Reconstruction Plan,” Müller said.

Müller was also asked about Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s recent interview with the Financial Times, in which Morawiecki accused the European Commission of making demands with a “gun to our head” and called on Brussels to refrain from financial and political "blackmail."

"We are going to defend our rights with any weapons which are at our disposal," Morawiecki told the FT in the interview.

Asked by Polish Radio what Morawiecki meant by “any weapons,” Müller said that veto power is one of the mechanisms by which Poland can voice discontent “when it comes to issues voted on in either the Council of the European Union or the European Council.”

“We hope that the European Commission will not force us to do that, but what else will there remain for us to do if EU institutions act in a way that has no legal basis?” Müller added.
