European Parliament to next week debate recent developments in Poland

The European Parliament will debate the controversial laws passed by Poland’s ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party on Tuesday and will vote on a resolution concerning human rights situation in the country on Wednesday.

The center-right EPP group had previously asked to postpone the debate, which was originally due in July, but voted in favour at the parliament’s conference of presidents on Thursday.

This is the second time the European Parliament will deal with Poland’s situation. The first debate was held in January and was attended by Polish PM Beata Szydlo.
