Polish Constitutional Tribunal did not yet legalize National Council of Judiciary

The expected ruling of the Constitutional Tribunal would confirm that the current Polish National Council of Judiciary (KRS), suspended from the European Networks of Councils of Judiciary in September 2018, is legal and capable of guaranteeing independence of judiciary, which critics claim it is not. Either there is a problem with the unanimity of the judges, while the Constitutional Tribunal prefers to speak as one in political matters, or the leaders of the party and the government stopped the consideration of the case, fearing a suspected Polexit, argues Ewa Siedlecka.
