WARSAW - Protesters blocked all exits from the Polish parliament after opposition parties accused the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party lawmakers of illegally passing the budget for next year.

The exits were protected by over a hundred policemen, who in turn were surrounded by hundreds of protesters chanting that lawmakers will remain blocked and calling on the head of the ruling party to come out and face them.Three Polish opposition parties earlier on Friday accused the parliament speaker of violating the constitution after he moved a key vote on next year's budget outside of the main chamber of parliament and blocked the media from recording the vote.
