Mr Choudhry talks about constitutional democracies in crisis, in a chapter of a book he wrote. Highlighting various issues concerning the present day political state of Poland and how the polish government led to the deterioration of its constitutional democracy.
In the chapter Professor Sujit Choudhry talks about the present political state of the nation. Pointing out the media and other parties leading to the worsening of constitutional democracy and the country’s presidency being a dictatorship.
He says the opposition to democracy grew since the beginning of the Cold War. Mainly his focal point is the law of Poland and the Prawo I Sprawiedliwosc (PiS) which is Poland’s justice party. The party is chaired by Jaroslaw Kaczynski and was founded by both Jaroslaw Kaczynski and Leck Kaczynski who are twin brothers. During the 2005 presidency election, the party worn by Leck Kaczynski and Jaroslaw became the prime minister of Poland. Thence the government directed its focus on weakening the core of the country’s constitutional democracy to remove any opposition to the ruling party and its stay in power in the future elections (chronicleweek.com).
He further expands on the dangers faced by Poland through the justice party (PiS) which threatens its Constitutional Democracy. Choudhry further explains that the main Centre of attention was the constitutional court and other regular courts. Saying that they are members of a coherent scheme related to a single body. Furthermore, Sujit Choudhry says the laws controlling various panels such as, elections, the granting of cases to judges and the appointment of short-term term presidents are all ways by which a party through systematic means instead of the manifested reasons that represents them, controlled the Polish government and bent them to their will in a period of one year.
