    Poland’s Law and Justice Party Condemns Government’s Media Overhaul as Threat to Democracy

    Poland’s Law and Justice (PiS) party, known for its socially conservative stance, has recently taken a firm stand against the proposed overhaul of public media by the current government. The party’s supreme council convened on Saturday to address the issue, resulting in the issuance of a resolution condemning the government’s plans.

    The resolution explicitly criticizes the government led by Donald Tusk, accusing it of attempting to seize control of public media and implementing a process of vetting and dismissing journalists. The document asserts that such actions would be carried out in direct contravention of the existing legal framework in Poland.

    The PiS resolution contends that the proposed changes represent a threat to freedom of speech and journalistic independence, both of which the party views as fundamental pillars of a democratic society. In the eyes of PiS, the government’s purported attacks on journalists are indicative of an anti-democratic nature that contradicts the principles of a free and open society.

    This development underscores the ongoing tension between Poland’s Law and Justice party and the current government, highlighting the significance of media freedom and democratic values in the political landscape.
