Thirty-nine percent of Poles believe that European Union authorities are seeking to remove the Law and Justice government from power in Poland, according to a poll conducted by Social Changes for conservative news outlet

Participants in the poll were asked whether they agree with the statement that “the European Union authorities are trying to remove the current Polish government from power through various actions.”

While 39 percent of the respondents agreed with this statement, 32 percent held the opposite opinion. However, 29 percent of the respondents had no opinion on the matter. The majority of Law and Justice (PiS) supporters (82 percent of them) and Confederation party (53 percent) are convinced that the EU authorities are seeking to overthrow the Polish government.

The poll also asked whether “Germany is seeking to take over power in the European Union?” For that question, 37 percent responded “definitely yes” or “probably yes,” while 35 percent disagreed and 28 percent did not know.

According to, the results affirm that an escalating number of Poles believe the EU and Germany represent threats to their sovereignty stemming from ongoing processes aimed at Poland within the European Union.

“These processes are frequently concealed, obscured, and not readily discernible, but they persistently advance,” writes. Higher social awareness on this matter enhances the likelihood of the Polish government being able to effectively counteract these policies.

The German politician Manfred Weber, who also heads the European People’s Party (EPP) in the European Parliament, recently stated in an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that he would like to build a “firewall against Law and Justice (PiS)” and “replace (PiS).”

“We advocate for a course that excludes radicals. AfD and Le Pen are our political enemies. I have formulated three conditions for any cooperation: Pro-Europe, pro-Ukraine, and pro-rule of law. In this way, we are building a firewall against Law and Justice. We are the only force that can replace Law and Justice in Poland and lead the country back to Europe,” said Weber, who took over the EPP leadership from the head of the Polish opposition, Donald Tusk.
