The resolution of the European Parliament is a response to the ruling of the Polish Constitutional Tribunal on the superiority of the constitution over European law. However, MEPs assessed that the judgment undermines EU law and threatens the independence of Polish judges.

The resolution was prepared by five political groups – Christian Democrats, Social Democrats, Greens, Left, and Liberals. It was adopted by 502 votes to, 153 against, and 16 abstentions.

The resolution stated that the EP regrets the fact that the initiative to challenge the primacy of EU law over national legislation was taken by the current Polish prime minister, which in turn was called "a unilateral decision questioning the legal framework of the European Union".

In turn, the judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal of October 7 was called "an attack on the European community of values ​​and rights as a whole", and the Constitutional Tribunal itself was called a "tool for legalizing illegal actions by the authorities". At the same time, it expressed "recognition for tens of thousands of Polish citizens for taking to the streets in peaceful, mass protests and fighting for their rights and freedoms as European citizens". MEPs also assured that "they share this desire for a strong democratic Poland at the heart of the European project".
