Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has written in the German daily Die Welt that while the EU has a formal democracy", the equality of member states is in practice "of a declarative nature," arguing that Germany and France's positions count for more than other countries.

"So we are dealing with a formal democracy and a de facto oligarchy in which the strongest hold power," he said, adding that EU imperialism must be combated. Morawiecki called for "profound reform that puts the common good and equality back at the forefront of the union's principles".

The article comes as tensions in Poland’s relations with the European Union grow due to the dispute over the recovery funds. Ruling party politicians in Poland have said Warsaw could hit back at the EU if the country does not get its share of pandemic recovery funds.
