Invalidity of presidential election in Poland

The independent Polish civil society organisation Stowarzyszenie Wolne Społeczeństwo (SWS, Free Society Association) calls for civil cooperation and support for the law-abiding Polish judges in order to stop the Andrzej Duda's usurpation of the position of the President of Poland for the next term in office. The SWS fully acknowledges the legal argumentation for cancelling the presidential election in Poland presented by the Stowarzyszenie Sędziów "Iustitia" (Association of Polish Judges "Iustitia") in the statement on 2020-08-03, cited below in draft translation from the Polish text (, 2020-08-03 ):

On 3 August 2020, the Chamber of Extraordinary Control and Public Affairs created within the Polish Supreme Court with officials illegally appointed by president Andrzej Duda through an extremely politicised nominating process, adopted an invalid resolution on the validity of the election of Andrzej Duda for another term. We would like to remind you that the Chamber was appointed in its entirety by the President at the request of the new National Council of Judiciary, despite the writ of prohibition issued by the Supreme Administrative Court for applications for preliminary rulings of the Court of Justice of the EU in Luxembourg, which will soon be decided. Any decision given by the Chamber and its new judges is invalid, as decided by the Polish Supreme Court in the resolution of its three joint chambers of the on 23 January 2020 (ref.: BSA Act I-4110-1/20). Thus, in view of the invalidity of today's ((2020-08-03)) "resolution", there has been no Supreme Court's declaration of validity of the election of the President of the Republic, which is required by Article 129 (1) of the Polish constitution.
