Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner denounces the provisions of a new piece of legislation, aimed at reforming the National Council of the Judiciary, the highest judicial self-regulating body, consisting of 25 members. According to this law, the 15 judges nominated by the self-governments (association of judges) would instead be elected by the lower house of the Polish parliament (Sejm). The petitioner argues that this change is unconstitutional, contrary to Union law and that it seriously undermines judicial independence.
