Poland – President vetoes bill

In Poland, the Warsaw Business Journal is reporting that President Bronisław Komorowski has vetoed a bill on genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Apparently, the previous government outlawed all use of GMOS. However, this was ruled by the European Court of Justice to be contrary to European law. Therefore, the law had to be revised.

The current government recently passed a new bill on GMOs, but the president has now vetoed it. The president’s veto can only be overridden by a 3/5 majority in the Sejm. Such a majority is unlikely to be forthcoming and a new bill will have to be drafted.
