Current constitutional chanes in Poland against the background of Polish political and legal traditions

Anna Rytel-Warzocha , Andrzej Szmyt


The article is dedicated to the assessment of the current constitutional changes in Poland and viewing them to explain them in the context of Polish political and legal traditions. The adoption of the Constitution in 1997, based on the principles of political pluralism, democratic rule of law and division of powers, fished the process of the democratic transformation. However, in 2015, by way of statutory legislation and constitutional practice, in cooperation with the President, the new ruling forces started the process of the destruction of Polish constitutional system. A reference to the interwar period is an important motive for the ideology of the leader of the current ruling majority. On the other hand, the concept of the ‘political decision-making centre’ of the state located outside the state apparatus is anchored in the facade of constitutional solutions from the period of the socialist system.
