The law bans enterprises alien to the European Economic Area from having majority shareholding in Polish media, so it was strongly criticized by Washington, which considered it was a direct attack on the US news channel TVN24.

Meanwhile, European Commission Spokesman Christian Wigand said that the bill posed major risks for Poland’s freedom and pluralism.”

Previously, thousands of Polish had protested against the law outside the presidential palace in this capital.

The ruling Law and Justice party (PiS) controls public television and many regional media based here.

On the other hand, the European Union has frequently criticized the Duda administration, currently sanctioned by this bloc.

This bloc’s Court of Justice fined the Polish government with a million euros that must be paid every day over what the European Union considers violations of judicial independence.

Meanwhile, due to other laws such as the ban on abortion, the PiS has lost support among the population, which protested at the headquarters of the legislative and judicial powers for days.
