The Vice President of the European Commission expects swift action.
As we wrote earlier, after the EU summit, the Hungarian and Polish prime ministers indicated that they would exercise their right to bring the rule of law case before the European Court of Justice. In addition to Viktor Orbán and Mateusz Morawieczki, Charles Michel, President of the European Council, also spoke about “It may delay the entry into force of the scheme by about two years.”.
In contrast, the Vice President of the European Commission expects urgent procedures before the European Court of Justice. According to Politico After the decision, Vera Gurova said she does not expect a major delay if Hungary or Poland decides to refer the mechanism to the European Union court (which, by the way, the two member states have two months to pass the law).
It is my understanding that some member states want full legal certainty from the European Court of Justice on such an important issue. They have the right to do so. “ The vice president of the authority responsible for justice stated in his email to Politico. However, he also added that he expects the process to proceed quickly. In his opinion, we could talk about months here instead of years.
