Resolution of the General Assembly of members of the Polish Constitutional Law Society
Polish lawyers consider the reforms introduced by PiS to be contrary to the principles of the common good, of constitutionalism, democratic legal state, separation of powers and judicial independence. They call these reforms a threat "to the constitutional identity of the Republic"
Legislation adopted in the years 2016-2018 relating to constitutional adjudication, the ordinary courts, the Supreme Court and the National Council of Judiciary infringes the principles of the common good, constitutional norms, a democratic state based on the rule of law, the separation of powers as well as the independence of the judiciary, creating a danger for the Republic of Poland’s constitutional identity, especially with respect to human rights and national (internal) sovereignty.
The Polish Constitutional Law Society urges all public authorities to comply with the Constitution of Poland and to ensure the immediate and full restoration of the legal order’s conformity with the Constitution.
