Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki criticized the European Parliament and defended Budapest over a resolution adopted on Thursday calling for Hungary's presidency of the EU Council to be revoked.
This is reported by RMF24.
"I believe that this is just a mockery on the part of the European Parliament because it is a blatant violation of European rules in their most important incarnation - the rules of treaties. Treaties that define what the EU looks like. The destruction of the entire EU governance in this way is not only a road to nowhere, it is a road to the abyss," the Polish Prime Minister said.
"I believe that if there is an attempt to rape individual EU members, if there is an attempt to force EU countries to have a qualified majority in the decision-making process, to the so-called federalization, that is, de facto centralization of the decision-making process, the bureaucratic process, then this will be a road in a very, very bad direction, a road that leads to a dead end," Morawiecki added.
In his opinion, "so far, such a vote by the European Parliament does not solve anything." At the same time, he emphasized that "Poland will be very clear not only about the illegality, illegality, violation of the rule of law by the European Parliament in this matter."
"The broader social, geopolitical, and political context means that we should work on understanding the differences between member states, not on cutting off the heads of those who oppose this policy," Morawiecki emphasized.
