Poland blasts EU 'interference' but rejects 'Polexit'

But stand-off with Brussels over judicial reforms continues

15 September, 13:11
(ANSA-AFP) - WARSAW, SEP 15 - Poland wants sovereignty and an end to EU "interference" in its internal affairs but will not leave the bloc, the head of the ruling right-wing populist party said on Wednesday. "There will be no Polexit... We unequivocally see Poland's future in the European Union," Jaroslaw Kaczynski, head of the Law and Justice (PiS) party, told Polish news agency PAP. The comments come after senior PiS officials hinted at the possibility of leaving the EU amid an increasingly bitter stand-off with Brussels over Poland's judicial reforms. In the latest twist in the long-running dispute, the European Commission has asked the EU's top court to impose daily fines on Poland until it suspends the controversial reforms. (ANSA-AFP).
