Poland A.D. 2020 – arbitrary legislative process or legislative lawlessness?

The victories of the political camp of the right wing in successive parliamentary elections in 2015 and 2019 unexpectedly brought about a completely new approach to the institutions, processes, and procedures and political phenomena in Poland. Relatively quickly, it became apparent that the new majority had decided to undermine the standards which had been accepted to date in the democratic world, including the rule of law. Ignoring the foundations of democracy also affected parliament and its legislative process. As a result, the functions of the parliament and the role of the opposition were de facto weakened, without taking into account the rights of minorities universally respected and thus far unquestionably recognized in a well-established democracy.
