We say ‘no’ to EU centralism – Polish PM

BRUSSELS, Oct 19 (Reuters) – Poland rejects European Union centralism, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki stated on Tuesday and accused the bloc of overstepping its competences, amid a deepening row with Brussels over the rule of regulation.

“EU competencies have clear boundaries, we must not remain silent when those boundaries are breached. So we are saying yes to European universalism, but we say no to European centralism,” Morawiecki advised the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

Brussels has lengthy stated reforms launched by Poland’s proper-wing authorities undermine judicial independence, however their row escalated this month when the Polish Constitutional Tribunal challenged a key tenet of EU integration by ruling that elements of the European treaties had been incompatible with the structure.
