The chapter focuses on Poland’s Law and Justice Party which is a highly nationalist, populist party that has right wing views. This party recently one its 2015 elections and is now the majority in the nation’s parliament. Since this party has taken office, the government of the nation has done a number of things that alter the foundation of Poland’s constitutional democracy such as eliminating things that hinder its rule as well as making sure that it solidifies its power in future elections.
