The Government of Poland is ready to raise a question of leaving the EU in case it stops receiving financial aid from the organization, Polish politician and head of the European Council Donald Tusk said on January 11, The Telegraph reports.
Former Prime Minister of Poland and current Head of the European Council believes that the Poland’s governing party is interested only in money assets, which the organization provides, and not the common market, legal framework and security safeguards. If the financial aid stops, the government may consider to have a referendum on the Country’s membership in the EU.
The European Commission has been criticizing the judicial reform in Poland for a number of years. Last December the EC raised a question on banning Poland’s right to vote in the EC as Warsaw violates the rule of law. And EU Commissar Günther Oettinger said that non-compliance with the legal principles can lead to restriction of member countries to the institution’s budget assets.
