World - EU gives Poland more time in rule of law probe, agrees to talks


By Alastair Macdonald and Gabriela Baczynska BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union executive on Tuesday said it would not escalate as planned its investigation into whether rule of law was under threat in Poland, but attend last-minute talks with Warsaw in a bid to resolve the dispute. The European Commission launched its unprecedented probe after Poland`s eurosceptic government introduced changes that critics say paralyze its top constitutional court, key for upholding democratic checks and balances. Last week, the Commission gave Warsaw until May 23 to make substantial progress in addressing concerns raised in Brussels over democratic rights and governance.

World - EU`s Timmermans to meet Polish PM on governance


By Alastair Macdonald BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The deputy head of the European Commission flew to Warsaw on Tuesday hoping to resolve a confrontation between Poland and the EU over government changes to the constitutional court that have raised concerns about the rule of law. Frans Timmermans, the first vice president of the EU executive, said he would meet Prime Minister Beata Szydlo of the eurosceptic, right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) party for talks that EU officials said would start at 2 p.m. (noon GMT). Last week, the Commission gave Timmermans a mandate to deliver a formal diplomatic note on the issue to Warsaw by Monday unless Poland made substantial progress in addressing the concerns raised in Brussels over democratic rights.

World - EU`s Timmermans to meet Polish PM on governance on Tuesday


The deputy head of the European Commission, Frans Timmermans, will meet Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo on Tuesday to discuss government moves on the judiciary that have raised EU concerns about the rule of law.
