WARSAW (Reuters) - A vote by the European Parliament in favour of a resolution questioning Hungary's ability to hold the rotating presidency of the European Union next year goes against the bloc's rules, Poland's prime minister said on Thursday.

"It is a clear violation of European rules in their most important form, that is treaty rules," Mateusz Morawiecki said at a conference in Moldova. "Destroying the entire way of managing the EU in this way is not only a road to nowhere, but it is a road to the abyss."
