Last Thursday, Poland’s new media bill turned into law, turning its nose at EU’s numerous concerns. The government’s media reforms give the treasury minister power to appoint heads of public TV, radio and civil service.

The Greens Group calls on the Commission and the Council for more concrete actions.
