Little enthusiasm for 'constitutional state apk' EU countries

strasbourg - An annual opinion on the state of the rule of law and democracy in each of the EU countries will not be forthcoming for the time being. The European Parliament made an appeal two years ago at the request of D66 European Parliamentarian Sophie in 't Veld to set up such a review, but the European Commission and the member states are abolishing the boat, as it turned out in a debate in Strasbourg.

There is no discussion about the goal of respecting the principles of the rule of law, said Vice-Chair of the Frans Timmermans Committee. On a tweet from In t 'Veld that apparently everything is going well in Europe, he reacted as stabbed. He pointed out that there are already many instruments, such as the Article 7 procedure launched by Brussels against Poland for political control over the judiciary. He acknowledged that the approach could be more structured.
