Quickie Link: Poland's New Government Will Adopt EU Rights Charter
(Poland) - Poland's incoming pro-business government will adopt the EU charter of fundamental rights, which Warsaw's ousted conservatives bitterly opposed during reform treaty talks, a top party official said Sunday. "It will be a modernising government, and very actively involved in the EU. So it will change Poland's stance on the treaty and thus will adhere to the charter of fundamental rights," Jacek Saryusz-Wolski told AFP. Previously, Poland rejected parts of the charter arguing that deeply Catholic "Poland's point of view culturally is different from the majority of other European countries," notably in its stance on Gay rights.
