Polish President Andrzej Duda Monday said he would veto two of three bills passed by Parliament in a judicial reform that has triggered nationwide protests and raised EU and U.S. concerns about a politicization of the courts.Parliament had earlier passed a bill giving it the right to name most of the members of the National Council of the Judiciary, which would nominate future candidates for the president to appoint to the Supreme Court.Opposition groups welcomed Duda's move, but urged him also to veto the third bill, which gives the justice minister the right to dismiss the heads of lower courts. The president signaled that he would approve this bill.
