President of the Council, Charles Michel has made a good and a bad proposal. The good: The States should decide on the basis of a rule of law report of the Commission on sanctions; by contrast, Warsaw and Budapest have been blocked so far. The bad: funds should only be reduced if a qualified majority of countries voted in favour.
This Quorum not coming together today, because the rule of law consciousness is not just in Central and Eastern Europe will remain fragile. Conversely, it would be better: Who wants to prevent sanctions, will need to muster a qualified majority. The European Parliament establishes this Position just as a red line for his acceptance of the financial decisions. Angela Merkel should put their words to action.Updated Date: 13 July 2020, 05:20
