Poles to move clocks back by one hour this weekend

23.10.2020 14:30
Poles will be setting their clocks an hour back as daylight saving time ends this weekend.
At 3 a.m. on Sunday, clocks across the European Union will fall back to 2 a.m., marking the end of Daylight Saving Time (DST).

European Union law requires all member countries to observe daylight saving time by moving clocks forward by an hour on the last Sunday of March and back by an hour on the last Sunday of October.

The European Parliament last year voted in favor of abandoning the practice of moving clocks back and forward by an hour.

EU lawmakers decided they wanted the time changes scrapped from 2021, leaving it up to national governments to choose whether to stay on permanent summer or winter time.

But before the final decisions are made, the issue still needs to be dealt with by member states.

Meanwhile, around 66 percent of Poles are against moving clocks forward in spring and then back again in the autumn, according to a study cited by the businessinsider.com.pl website.

At the same time, most respondents opt for permanent summer time, while only 10 percent say they prefer to stick with the winter time, the study by pollster Ariadna found.

Only 14 percent of Poles are in favor of retaining the twice-a-year time shift, according to the study, businessinsider.com.pl reported.

Poland has been part of the European Union since 2004.
