POLISH CONSTITUTION AFTER 20 YEARS

Jakub Żurek

Abstract


The text studies current constitutional tensions in Poland. The author is analysing political problems in good and effective governance in Poland, which are caused by vague constitutional provisions that construct unclear relations between main state bodies. Therefore, he criticises the constitutional system that, instead of solving problems, only multiplies them. One of the reasons of this situation he blames on the authors of the 1997 Constitution, which gave more importance to the political aims of that time than to the construction of solid and effective system of state bodies. In order to change this situation, the author calls for a profound constitutional reform.
To text includes present tensions between the government and the Supreme Court as well as brief information on the 2015–2107 conflict with the Polish Constitutional Tribunal.
