Languages of publication
Opinion of the Venice Commission about amendments to the Constitutional Tribunal Act of 2016 was prepared upon the request of the Polish Minister for Foreign Affairs, Witold Waszczykowski. In his request, he identified the constitutional issues to be examined by the Commission. As stated by the Commission itself, the opinion referred to the composition of the Constitutional Tribunal. In its Opinion, the Commission makes an assessment, recommendations and suggestions, at the same time declaring its continuing support. In this respect, it did not go beyond the standard procedure, which does not prejudge the issue of whether it is right in its assessments. The Polish authorities are not legally bound by the findings of the Commission’s Opinion which, however, contains some recommendations and suggestions that deserve response.
