Political Participation

For the first time, in 2014, EU countries had to take the results of the elections into account when proposing a candidate for European Commission President.

Albeit an important step, this is only the first of many in making the European Union more democratic and bringing it closer to its citizens.

Europeans have the right to know who Commissioners and Commission staff, Members of the European Parliament and representatives of the Council meet in the context of the legislative process. The Commission is committed to bringing a new lease of life to the relationship with the European Parliament, as well as to working more closely with national parliaments.

An ECI is an invitation to the European Commission to propose legislation on matters where the EU has competence to legislate. The ECI allows one million EU citizens to participate directly in the development of EU policies, by calling on the European Commission to make a legislative proposal. A citizens' initiative has to be backed by at least one million EU citizens, coming from at least 7 out of the 28 member states. The rules and procedures governing the citizens' initiative are set out in an EU Regulation adopted by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union in February 2011. http://ec.europa.eu/citizens-initiative/public/welcome
