“Poland filed a complaint to the CJEU today regarding the non-compliance with the European treaties of the regulation on the general system of conditionality aiming to protect the EU budget,” the government’s spokesman Piotr Müller announced on Thursday.
In the statement of the Government Information Centre, Mr Müller stressed that “such solutions have no legal basis in the Treaties, interfere with the competences of the Member States and violate EU law.”
“The disbursement of funds from the EU budget should be subject only to the fulfilment of objective and specific conditions that clearly arise from the provisions of the law,” the government’s spokesman added.
In the statement it was also emphasised that “Poland’s doubts have been shared from the very beginning by Hungary, which, at the same time, is submitting its own complaint against the regulation.
The government’s complaint to the CJEU regards last year’s agreement concerning the multi-annual budget, the reconstruction fund and the conditionality mechanism. At that time, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and the head of the Hungarian government, Viktor Orban, announced an appeal against the regulation on payments from the budget related to compliance with the rule of law.
