Poland remains 'loyal' EU member, PM tells European leaders

18.10.2021 16:15
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has written a letter to European Union leaders, reassuring them that his country “remains a loyal member” of the bloc, but also warning that the EU was in danger of ceasing to be “an alliance of free, equal and sovereign states.”

In his statement, addressed to the prime ministers and presidents of other EU member states, Morawiecki said: “I wish to reassure you that Poland remains a loyal member of the EU  an organisation based on common Treaties, established by all Member States which have entrusted a number of competences to common constitutions and have jointly regulated many areas of life through European law.”

He added that Poland “respects this law and recognizes its primacy over national laws, pursuant to all our obligations under the Treaty on the EU.”

“At the same time ... I want to ... draw your attention to a dangerous phenomenon that threatens the future of our Union,” Morawiecki wrote. 

“We ought to be anxious about the gradual transformation of the Union into an entity that would cease to be an alliance of free, equal and sovereign states, and instead become a single, centrally managed organism, run by institutions deprived of democratic control by the citizens of European countries," he went on.

Morawiecki warned that if "we do not stop this phenomenon, all will feel its negative effects - today it may concern just one country - tomorrow, under a different pretext, another."

And so “I am asking you to hear Polish arguments, to refer to them, and to be open to dialogue,” he said in his letter, which was published in English on Monday.

“I truly believe that together, in the spirit of mutual respect and understanding, without imposing one’s will on others, we can find a solution that will strengthen our European Union,” Morawiecki wrote.

His letter came after the European Parliament’s press services last week said the assembly would again call on the European Commission, the EU’s executive, to promptly launch the bloc’s conditionality mechanism, which allows the restriction of access to EU funding, as well as take action against Warsaw for what was described as breaches of member-state obligations.

Morawiecki is set to participate in a European Parliament debate on Tuesday as the bloc’s lawmakers respond to a recent landmark judgement by Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal that parts of EU law are incompatible with the country’s constitution.

Shortly after the Polish top court ruled that the Polish constitution has primacy over EU laws, Morawiecki offered assurances that “all obligations arising from the bloc’s regulations remain in force” and any talk of a Polexit is “fake news.”
