BRUSSELS (AP) — Senior officials from two founding members of the European Union have expressed fears that a Polish court’s ruling that Poland’s Constitution has supremacy over EU laws could trigger the the country’s exit from the 27-nation bloc. France’s Europe minister insisted that the decision by Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal was an attack against the entire EU. Luxembourg’s minister of foreign and European affairs said Poland is “playing with fire.” They spoke a day after Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal defied the EU’s legal order by holding that Polish laws take precedence over the bloc’s. Poland’s Senate adopted a resolution Friday stating it will “stand guard to the national interests which reside in Poland’s continued presence in the European Union.”
