World - Poland says EU actions on constitutional tribunal are `premature`

European Commission`s actions on Wednesday with respect to the issue of Poland`s constitutional tribunal are premature and expose the Commission to a risk of losing its authority, the Polish foreign ministry said on Wednesday. The Commission urged Poland on Wednesday to apply over the next three months measures to protect the powers of the Constitutional Tribunal, stepping up pressure on Warsaw`s euroskeptic government. `With respect to the today`s decision of the European Commission we hereby say that the actions of the Commission prior to the coming into law of the law on the Constitutional Tribunal are decisively premature,` the ministry said.

World - Hong Kong pro-independence candidate disqualified from election

A member of the pro-independence Hong Kong National Party has been disqualified from running in next month`s Legislative Council elections after he declined to sign a controversial new form saying the city is an `inalienable` part of China. Chan Ho-tin received an email from the Electoral Affairs Commission on Saturday which said his application to join the election had been `invalidated`, fuelling speculation that others who hold pro-independence views also could be disqualified. `The National Party is honored to become the first party to be banned from joining a democratic election by the government due to political difference,` the party wrote on its Facebook page.

World - Poland says EU threats over top court changes illegal

The leader of Poland`s governing conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party on Thursday lashed out at an EU disciplinary process that is piling pressure on Warsaw, saying the European Commission is acting illegally. On Wednesday the commission escalated the long-running spat over Warsaw`s controversial moves to shake up the country`s constitutional court, giving Poland a three-month deadline to restore full powers to the tribunal. This is nothing but a jolly delight for the European Commission and its officials,` PiS leader and former prime minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski told Germany`s Bild tabloid.

World - EU clears French state-aid for tidal energy plant

The European Commission has cleared French state support for an experimental tidal power plant off the northwestern coast of the country, saying the aid given was in line with European rules. France will support the construction of four turbines, which will each produce 1.4 megawatts of electricity, through a direct grant and repayable advances, the Commission said, without stating the amount of money pledged. The Commission said the project supported market entry of a novel renewable energy technology, including turbines with several innovative features, with aid limited to the cost of producing electricity from the plant.

Business - Teva purchase of Allergan generics business gets OK with conditions

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd won U.S. antitrust approval to purchase Allergan Plc`s generics business, after agreeing to divest more than 75 generic drugs to rival firms, the Federal Trade Commission said on Wednesday. The $40.5 billion deal, which was announced in July 2015, solidifies Teva`s position as the world`s No. 1 maker of generics while freeing Allergan to focus on branded drugs. Teva will sell 79 pharmaceutical products to 11 rival firms, marking the largest ever drug divestiture order in an FTC pharmaceutical merger case, the commission said in a statement.

World - EU sets Poland 3-month deadline to reverse changes to top court

The European Union on Wednesday handed Poland`s rightwing government a three-month deadline to reverse changes to its Constitutional Court or face sanctions for breaching EU norms on the rule of law and democracy. The move is the second step in an unprecedented procedure which could eventually see Warsaw`s voting rights suspended in the Council of Ministers, the EU`s highest decision-making body. `We now invite the Polish authorities to take action to solve these concerns and inform the Commission of the steps taken within three months,` European Commission deputy president Frans Timmermans told reporters.

World - EU gives Poland three months to address concerns about rule of law

By Francesco Guarascio BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission on Wednesday gave Poland three months to boost the powers of its Constitutional Tribunal, stepping up pressure on Warsaw`s euroskeptic government to respect the EU`s democratic standards. Commission deputy head Fran Zimmerman`s said Brussels, with these new recommendations, was taking the next step in a disciplinary procedure that could lead to the suspension of Warsaw`s EU voting rights and the freezing of its EU funds. The move comes after months of largely fruitless diplomacy since Poland`s Law and Justice (PiS) party won elections last October and imposed changes on the tribunal and Poland`s public broadcaster, which Brussels fears undermine democratic checks and balances.

World - Bankers `bete noire` to lead Brexit talks

Veteran French politician and former EU commissioner Michel Barnier was named Wednesday to lead Brexit talks with London where he was the `bete noire` of free-wheeling bankers hostile to his bonus curbs and tighter regulations. European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker said Barnier was just the man to lead what promise to be difficult talks as he has the experience and contacts needed to win agreement. Britain`s June 23 vote to quit the 28-nation European Union shocked EU leaders who had bet on a vote to remain, with France and the Commission leading demands that negotiations should begin as soon as possible.
