Europe’s right-wing parties meet for ‘Warsaw Summit’ Dec 05, 2021 0 0 12345 dpaWarsawRepresentatives of several conservative and right-wing populist parties are meeting in Warsaw this weekend at the invitation of Poland’s governing Law and Justice party (PiS).At the “Warsaw Summit,” they plan to discuss strategies for a stronger emphasis on nation states in the European Union, the nationalist-conservative PiS announced on its website.The gathering is following on from a similar meeting in July as part of efforts towards forming a common bloc within European politics.In particular, PiS says the parties want to discuss how to counter “repeated treaty violations” by the European Commission and other European institutions.The hosts were apparently alluding to rule-of-law proceedings against Poland and Hungary.Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban had already arrived on Friday for talks with his Polish counterpart Mateusz Morawiecki.In addition to PiS leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski and Prime Minister Morawiecki as hosts and Hungary’s Orban, Marine Le Pen as head of the French National Rally party also personally attended the meeting.According to the Polish news agency PAP, around “a dozen” other parties sent emissaries, some of them prominent. The Alternative for Germany (AfD) was absent, as was the Italian Lega leader Matteo Salvini. Orban published pictures in which he was seen with right-wing populist party leaders from Spain and Romania.
