Poland’s prime minister reassured his countrymen that the European Union “loves” his nation as the bloc’s top court moved to halt the government’s key judicial overhaul.

The EU’s Court of Justice ordered Poland on Friday to “immediately suspend” measures lowering the retirement age for Supreme Court justices, a provisional step pending a decision expected in 2019. Premier Mateusz Morawiecki confirmed he received a notice from the Luxembourg-based tribunal and that the cabinet would react after “thorough analysis.”
