Poland's support for the European Union remains strong, but the confrontation with Brussels provokes a debate on the Polish right about ‘polexit’, the British daily Financial Times wrote.

The critical point was the recent ruling of the Constitutional Tribunal, which, after examining the Prime Minister's application, found that European regulations, in so far as the bodies of the European Union, operate outside the limits of powers conferred by Poland, are inconsistent with the Polish Constitution. The ruling allows the government to ignore selected rulings of the Court of Justice of the EU, concerning, for example, the judiciary. According to the daily, this is the consolidation of a long dispute between Warsaw and Brussels over the controversial reconstruction of the Polish judiciary.

The author of the analysis noted that for a country once considered a great success of the EU's eastern expansion, this is a striking turn. He emphasized that Poland's accession to the EU in 2004 contributed to the economic boom which became one of the longest periods of growth in the world. It also gave the country that survived 40 years behind the Iron Curtain a chance to integrate firmly with the West.
