The reform of the method of election of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) raised this Tuesday by PSOE and United We Can has generated controversy beyond national borders. Not only has the Spanish opposition been furious, but even the Polish government has spoken out on the proposal and accused the European Union of comparative grievance, while asking what it is going to do about it.

The Polish Secretary of State for Justice, Sebastian Kaleta, shared a comment on Twitter this Wednesday in which he explained the reform presented in the Congress of Deputies by the two parliamentary groups and has questioned the decision. Likewise, has criticized the attitude of the European Union and Germany before this proposal.

“The European Commission and Germany create mechanisms to straighten us out (Poland), to force obedience, while the current Spanish model it doesn’t bother them at all“, has reproached.

According to the proposal presented this Tuesday in Congress by PSOE and United We Can, twelve of the twenty members (those of judicial extraction) could be elected in a second vote by absolute majority. The other eight members (jurists of recognized prestige) would continue to need the three fifths, since that is what the Constitution establishes.

In the same vein, the Polish Deputy Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Pawel Jablonski, has also shared the reform on Twitter. “Spain: the Government changes the rules for the election of the local CGPJ. Still, (as in Poland) the judges will be elected by Parliament. However, instead of a three-fifths majority (as in the Central European country) it should be half plus one, “he wrote.

In this sense, he asked the Vice President of Values ​​and Transparency of the European Commission, the Czech Vera Jourova, if he will intervene.

In a later message in both languages, and “for clarity”, he clarified that the Government of Poland considers that “the judicial system is an internal matter of the Member States”. Thus, it has stressed that the Court of Justice (TEU) “does not confer this competence on the Commission”, and has implied that there would be no sanctions in either case.

The Polish Executive has shown so much interest in the Spanish situation because the Court of Justice of the European Union (TEU) ruled in 2019 that the judicial reform carried out in the country was “contrary to EU law” and you want to avoid comparative torts.

The Polish reform lowered the retirement age of judges and opened the door to a greater political control of the judiciary. The decision of the TEU was a new setback against the Polish ultranationalist Executive in its struggle with the community institutions over this matter.
