Depends. 4/5ths for a warning but unanimous for suspension of voting rights.

"At least 22 of the 28 member states will now need to vote in favour of the commission’s proposal for a formal warning, but Brussels is confident it has the numbers.

The most serious sanction possible under article 7 would be to suspend the member state of its voting rights in EU institutions and suspend EU financial transfers, but that would require unanimity among the member states in a subsequent vote. Hungary’s rightwing government has insisted it would never support such a move."

"The most serious sanction possible under article 7 would be to suspend the member state of its voting rights in EU institutions " That is article 7(2), I was posting about 7(1).
I do not see how one would get unanimity among the member states in a subsequent vote when surely Poland would not vote so?
