Poland will remain in the European Union despite an escalating standoff over its adherence to its rules, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said, as opposition leaders called for protests against a ruling that challenged the legal foundations of the bloc.

Joining the EU in 2004 was one of Poland’s “highlights” in the past decades, Morawiecki wrote on Facebook on Friday. “Poland’s place is and will be in the European family of nations,” he said.
