#Poland's #RuleofLaw breakdown: If correctly reported, this is quite the admission from @VeraJourova as it directly contradicts what Commission told MEPs last Jan and this would make VDL Commission complicit in violation i.a. of law-making Art 7(1) recommendation and milestone...
Compare the COMM's legally & reality-disconnected diagnosis re PL (in part *unconstitutional*) law of Jan 2023 with (correct) assessment of @coe Committee of Ministers…

Releasing EU recovery funding on back of a set of cosmetic, in part unconstitutional, changes rushed in violation i.a. of EU's own lawmaking recovery milestone while ignoring continuing + *systemic* violation of ECJ (& ECtHR) #ruleoflaw rulings would be particularly irresponsible

Just finished reading the 389 paragraphs (a single afternoon wasn’t enough 😬). Overall, a careful/compelling ruling with some new aspects on organisation of national judiciaries, judicial independence & transversality of effective judicial protection requirements (🧵🔽)
1/ Background: This ECJ judgment concerns Poland’s ruling party’s #MuzzleLaw, a grossly unconstitutional and rushed piece of legislation which aimed to (and was used to) punish Polish judges for applying Polish and EU and ECHR #ruleoflaw requirements…
2/ Re admissibility, 🇵🇱 gov sought to rely on the (un)constitutional “rulings” of the discredited (un)constitutional tribunal (which is no longer a court) to deny ECJ jurisdiction. ECJ answer: a 1st year EU law lecture on basics of EU membership, esp re importance of #ruleoflaw

Can the EU cancel the Hungarian Presidency of the Council of the EU?

A 🧵 based on the @ComMeijers study and draft forthcoming EU Parliament resolution

#EUCO #Hungary @HungaryintheEU
1. Despite not being expressly foreseen, the possibility of postponing the Hungarian Presidency of the Council of the Union may reveal as one of the most effective approaches to make Hungary abide by its rule of law obligations #EUCO #RuleOfLaw
2. Considering that the Hungarian Presidency is set to kick in right after the next EU Parliament elections at the time of the top appointments, the case for postponement or suspension of the presidency is set to acquire some political momentum. The following Presidency will be……

💥 Breaking

The EU Parliament set to prevent Hungary to hold the presidency of the Council, given its well established departure from the EU foundational values and ‘rules of the game’

#euco #RuleOfLaw @GoodLobbyProfs
There appears to be an irreconcilable conflict between holding the presidency of the Council and being subject to:

- Art 7(1) TEU procedure
- suspensions of EU funds

How can the Hungarian government guarantee the proper functioning of the Council?

#EUCO #hungarianpresidency
We may expect the EU Parliament asking - through as resolution - #EUCO to rearrange modalities of the Hungarian presidency, or ongoing troika (Belgium+Spain) to alter the conditions of their internal arrangements…

Towards a depotentiated semester or postponed one?

1/10 🇪🇹 Let's embark on an imaginative journey and explore how the administration of Eskinder Nega might have looked like if he were elected as the Prime Minister of Ethiopia. Keep in mind this is purely speculative! #EthiopianPolitics #AlternativeHistory
2/10 🕊️ Building Bridges: Nega's commitment to freedom of speech and democracy would likely drive his administration to prioritize national dialogue, bringing together various ethnic and political groups for peaceful discussions. #UnityInDiversity
3/10 🗳️ A New Era of Democracy: Electoral transparency could take center stage under Nega's administration, ensuring fair competition for all political parties. This might involve empowering the National Electoral Board and promoting voter education. #FreeAndFairElections

On #StPatricksDay2023 I want to shout out to my compatriots from #Ireland producing some of the most incisive, compelling, and agenda-setting scholarship in global constitutional law today. Read them, follow them, connect with them.

A loooong (but very incomplete) thread 🧵
A few quick starting notes for a global audience.
I often think constitutional law research by Irish scholars is so rich because of our unique context, in a constitutional system that has one foot in colonialism and conflict, and one (today) in the rich Global North.
#Ireland's war of independence, civil war, 1922 Constitution, partition, and 1937 Constitution (still in force) sets our experience apart from the gradualist constitutional development of e.g. #Canada, #Australia, #NewZealand, but has commonalities with other states (e.g. India).

"Where a Member State adopts measures that undermine the independence of national courts, the EU judicial architecture is compromised and so is the #ruleoflaw within the EU"

Excellent speech by CJEU President Lenaerts on the RoL legal obligations which flow from EU Membership
With respect, however, the ECJ has delivered absurd/reality disconnected judgment in Noble Bank which means, in practice, that ECJ has stopped assessing whether referring court is composed of judges or irregularly appointed individuals & delegated this EU job to ECtHR in practice
ECJ LM test is similarly absurd (& violates effective judicial protection requirements IMO) in situation where e.g. Art 6(1) ECHR and Art 19(1) TEU have been interpreted as "unconstitutional" then second step as currently interpreted by ECJ = reality disconnected again @BardPetra

Nello strabismo ideologico dei marxisti duri e puri de noantri, il furor antiamericano obnubila a tal punto le capacità di giudizio da far dimenticare che Marx nelle sue intemerate anticapitaliste non mancava di puntare il dito contro la #religione strumento di potere. ⤵️
Potere autocratico, cerchia di #oligarchi come prosaico sostituto della nobiltà, burocrazia connessa al potere dei siloviki. E, immancabile, richiamo alla guerra santa, con tanto di patriarca ex KGB e Rolex, che benedice soldati e carri armati.
Sotto, masse di diseredati. ⤵️

I regret to hear that in #Spain negotiations on the renewal of the Council for the Judiciary, which has been acting in ad interim functions since December 2018, have been suspended. The position of the @EU_Commission in this regard is already well known (2022 #RuleOfLaw report).
The @EU_Commission has recommended #Spain to proceed with the renewal of the Council for the Judiciary as a matter of priority and initiate,immediately after the renewal,a process in view of adapting the appointment of its judges-members, taking into account European standards.
The @EU_Commission continues to call all parties involved to take the necessary actions for the successful implementation of this recommendation.

EU source: law implementing the global deal on minimum taxation is taken off today’s @EUCouncil agenda, but the Hungarian #revovery plan will be discussed in a non-public session
The proposal under the #RuleofLaw conditionality procedure against #Hungary is also taken off today’s agenda➡️no decision today about freezing €7,5bln cohesion money to Hungary
@EUCouncil No deal on the aid to #Ukraine either: 26 member states are for, #Hungary is still against. This means no approval today of the Hungarian #recovery plan

Escalating the issue to the #EUCO is also a wrong move.

Today at noon: 🇪🇺Commission will announce an unprecedented denial of €7.5 billion in EU budget funds from #Hungary over #Orban's #RuleOfLaw violations and corruption.

Will need to be approved by a majority vote of countries. 🇵🇱&🇮🇹 may vote against, but it has the votes to pass.
In retaliation, #Orban has threatened to veto further 🇪🇺aid to #Ukraine, including an €18 billion aid package 🇺🇦desperately needs right now. Hungary also blocking a proposal for a minimum tax on multinational companies.

Will this prompt reform of Council's unanimity traditions?
🇪🇺Budget Commissioner @DReynders outlines the many Hungarian violations of EU #RuleOfLaw that must be addressed to unfreeze €7.5bn in 🇪🇺funds unfrozen - including judicial interference
