Poland's lower house adopted the ruling camp's bill on the Supreme Court after rejecting over 1,300 amendments proposed by the opposition, Polish news services report.
The bill foresees establishment of three new Supreme Court chambers, a new procedure of appointing Supreme Court judges and forced retirement of incumbent judges, among others.
Amendments approved by the lower house strengthen the role of the president in appointing Supreme Court judges.
Poland will carry out the judiciary reform amid harsh fighting, governing party Law and Justice (PiS) leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski said in a TVP interview on Wednesday.
The reform is indispensable, he added.
Polish judiciary reform is the competence of the state solely, Kaczynski said on the European Commission vice-president Frans Timmermans. This is an abuse, an action of a political nature, he added.
