Commission

is to end six years of

rule of law

proceedings against

Poland

, Commission President

Ursula von der Leyen

said on Monday, marking the opening of a "new chapter" for the country.
The proceedings were launched when far-right populist party

PiS

Tusk has vowed to restore judicial independence.
