Kaczynski: EU law primacy undermines sovereignty

Jaroslaw Kaczynski (pictured), leader of Poland's ruling Law and Justice party, stated on Saturday that the European Union's rule of the primacy of bloc's law over national's undermines Poland's sovereignty.

"This is an unbelievable demand that undermines the foundations of our sovereignty, our constitutional order, the right of the Republic of Poland to success," the politician said.

Poland previously filed a motion with its constitutional tribunal to determine whether its constitution takes precedence over EU treaties. The primacy of the bloc's law only applies where member states have ceded sovereignty to the union.
