Poland's constitutional court ruled earlier that national law had primacy over EU law in areas where they contradicted each other, putting the country on a collision course with the European Commission, the EU’s executive arm.
Poland does not plan to leave the European Union, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Friday, as opposition forces and authorities keep accusing each other of seeking the withdrawal.
"The accession of Poland and the countries of Central Europe to the European Union is one of the most important events of recent decades. Both for us and for the EU itself. We all won on this. Therefore, I clearly say: Poland's place is and will be in the European family of peoples," Morawiecki posted on Facebook.
According to him, the decision of the Constitutional Court "confirmed what literally follows from the content of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, namely, that constitutional law has superiority over other sources of law".
"We have the same rights as other nations. We want these laws to be respected. We are not some uninvited guest in the EU and therefore we do not agree to be regarded as a second-class country. We want a community of respect," Morawiecki continued.
Recently, the opposition and the authorities in Poland have mutually accused each other of wanting to withdraw the country from the European Union. On Thursday evening, the Constitutional Court of the republic decided on the supremacy of the Polish Constitution over EU law.
