EU Commission says will act over Poland’s challenge to bloc law

The European Commission is assessing options to respond to a Polish court ruling that questioned the supremacy of European Union law, but there is no question that the bloc’s executive will take action, its chief Ursula von der Leyen said on Tuesday.

“The European Commission is, at the moment, carefully assessing this judgement,” she told the European Parliament in Strasbourg ahead of a speech by Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

“But I can already tell you: I am deeply concerned. This ruling calls into question the foundations of the European Union. It is a direct challenge to the unity of the European legal order.”
