“The European Commission has asked Poland not to question the primacy of European Union law over national legislation, because it is the fundamental principle of the 27-nation bloc, a Commission spokesman said on Thursday. The Commission, which is the guardian of EU treaties, sent a letter to the Polish government on Wednesday asking Warsaw to withdraw a motion filed by the Polish prime minister with Poland’s constitutional court seeking a ruling on whether the Polish constitution or EU treaties are more important. … The executive Commission’s letter follows the start of a Commission legal procedure against Germany on Wednesday, aimed at forcing Berlin to assert the primacy of European law over national court decisions after Germany’s highest court challenged a judgement by the EU’s top court.” (06/10/21)
