The President of Poland Andrzej Duda conceded to opposition demands and vetoed parliamentary legislation, which should lead to the reform of the judicial system of the country, reports the BBC.
We are talking about the three laws that caused a wave of protests across Poland and the condemnation of the European Union, Poland threatened serious sanctions in the event of ratification by the President of the new laws.
Duda has vetoed two of the three laws. The first law dismisses all judges of the Supreme court and gives the justice Minister the sole right to decide who of the judges can stay.
The second law gives politicians the right to choose members of the National judicial Council that appoints judges of the Supreme court.
The third law, which was repealed by the President, gives Ministers the right to select and dismiss judges of lower courts.
