Poland is now in 47th place, up from 57th last year, according to the bankier.pl website.

However, despite the improvement, Poland is still classified among „problematic” countries, bankier.pl reported.

„While Poland has a diverse media landscape, public awareness of press freedom remains low,” the ranking’s creators said.

They added: „During the eight years of rule by the Law and Justice party (PiS), the public media were turned into propaganda tools and privately owned media were subjected to different forms of pressure. The opposition’s victory at the end of 2023 offers an opportunity to improve the right to information.”

Norway topped the global league table, ahead of Denmark and Sweden, while Hungary, Malta and Greece were named as the worst performers among European Union countries, ranking 67th, 73rd and 88th respectively.

The World Press Freedom Index, compiled annually by Paris-based NGO Reporters Without Borders (RSF), compares the level of freedom enjoyed by journalists and media in 180 countries.
