Changes in electoral system are intended to help PiS win the elections [interview with the former chairman of the National Electoral Commission]
‘The structure of voters has changed. This will clearly reduce PiS’s chances in the elections. A motion was filed in 2014, as well as in 2018 and six months ago. The Sejm is not dealing with it at all for the third time, even though it is obliged to respect the opinion of the National Electoral Commission (NEC),’ says the former head of the NEC, Judge Wojciech Hermeliński.
Manowska of the Supreme Court is now blocking the execution of the 3rd CJEU ruling. This is how the authority’s nominees are implementing the compromise with the EU
Małgorzata Manowska, acting as the First President of the Supreme Court, does not want to hand over the files of an important case regarding the status of the neo-judges of the Supreme Court to the legal judges of the Supreme Court.

Judge Juszczyszyn is being prosecuted again for applying EU law. This is how Ziobro’s people are ‘supporting’ the compromise
Judge Juszczyszyn from Olsztyn, who returned to work just six months ago, did not have peace of mind for very long. Ziobro’s nominees are after him again because Juszczyszyn is still enforcing ECtHR and CJEU judgments. He is facing as many as three new disciplinary actions!
President of a legal Chamber of the Supreme Court refuses to adjudicate with neo-judges: ‘I’m not afraid, I’ve chosen my fate’
Piotr Prusinowski, President of the Labour and Social Security Chamber, has issued a poignant and emotional statement explaining why he will not adjudicate with neo-judges of the Supreme Court. In it, he calls on the neo-judges to come to their senses and warns against dictatorship.
The President promoted Ziobro’s people and judges from the Kasta/Antykasta group. This is what the compromise with the EU looks like
The President has given high promotions to judges associated with Minister Ziobro, members of the illegal NCJ and the partner of the head of the neo-NCJ. At the same time, independent judges are experiencing further repressions. This shows how the President and the PiS authorities will implement the compromise with the EU in practice.
PiS is changing the Act on courts for billions for the National Recovery Plan. But it could breach the Constitution and incite chaos
PiS is making concessions to the EC. It will pass the disciplining of judges over to the Supreme Administrative Court and restrict the Muzzle Act. But this is another ostentatious change, because it leaves the illegal National Council for Judiciary and the neo-judges who are the source of the problems with the rule of law. The administrative judges are protesting against the changes.
A legal judge of the Supreme Court is not afraid of the muzzle regulations and challenges the status of neo-judges of the Supreme Court
The old Supreme Court challenged the legality of the neo-judges in the Supreme Court. This is another such ruling issued despite the prohibition to examine their status. This ruling shows that the old Supreme Court judges will continue to apply the judgments of the ECtHR and the CJEU.

A dozen or so judges from Kraków issued a statement that they would not adjudicate with neo-judges.

But more judges from Warsaw and Rzeszów are contesting the legality of the neo-judges.
