The democracy in Poland is dying right now, at this very moment; and it's not a glorious death; it does not end with a bang but a whimper.

The process started in Autumn 2015, with the elections won by the unironically named Law and Justice (PiS, pol. Prawo i Sprawiedliwość) party.

PiS managed to win both parts of executive, the (mostly ceremonial) presidential seat and a precarious majority in both chambers of the parliament, Sejm and Senat.

Winning the presidential elections was, amazingly enough, the major factor that allowed PiS to trample the existing law system. The irony, as usual, is an unforgiving motherfucker. You see, the president signs nominations of the members of the judiciary and signs the newly voted law into existence (or, as it's the presidential seat's prerogative, they can veto the law).

The current president of Poland, one prof. Andrzej Duda, a lawyer who graduated from the prestigious Jagiellonian University, is, unfortunately, a spineless muppet, and his enthusiastic co-operation with the ruling party was crucial in the coup d'etat that will conclude this week with the bill ultimately removing the independent judiciary from the the landscape of polish statecraft.
