‘Sad’ Merkel issues final warning to EU over infighting – ‘I am concerned’

Many MEPs want action to be taken against the two countries over ongoing allegations that they are undermining their own democracies.

Last Tuesday, the Polish government adopted a ruling from the nation’s Constitutional Tribunal that said that the Polish constitution has primacy over some EU law.

A requirement of membership to the EU is that its law supersedes that of individual member states.

Ms Merkel said that the EU had “big problems”, but she advised that they be solved “in talks, to find compromises”.
