PES-led resolution on the rule of law in Poland warns of penalising cities and regions  
 Plenary session of the European Committee of the Regions
2/1/2018
Commenting on the Resolution, the Group's First Vice-President, Christophe Rouillon, stressed that: "We share the European Commission's concerns regarding the Polish government’s modifications of laws that have resulted in a lack of independent and legitimate constitutional review and of judicial independence. However, we are concerned about the potential suspension of EU fundings, which would have serious consequences on Polish regional and local authorities in case the Polish government fails to address the EU's concerns. 

"Cities and regions must under no circumstance be held hostage by policies pursued by national governments", he pointed out, reiterating the CoR's position against any macroeconomic conditionality.  

The resolution provides a timely input on the European Parliament's resolution on the same topic, scheduled to be adopted at the EP's Plenary Session of 7-8 February.
