Today the prime ministers of #Bulgaria and #Romania are in Brussels, Boyko Borissov and Victor Ponta. According to a press release from the Council of Ministers, Mr Borissov will present in Brussels the level of EU funds absorption and will inform about the emitted bonds, amounting to 950 mn euros. The premiers of the two countries are in Brussels days before the expected publication by the Commission of the annual reports under the Control and Verification Mechanism, with which the two countries were accepted under conditionality in the EU in 2007. This year the Commission promised that it will come up with a five-year summarising report and guidelines how monitoring should continue on the slow reforms process in the area of justice in the two member states. According to the agenda of the audiovisual service of the Commission, no statements are planned after the meetings of Mr Borissov with Jose Manuel Barroso and Herman Van Rompuy. Romania's premier is in Brussels for other reasons as well. His country has been warned to respect its Constitution and rule of law after they were overrode a few days ago when the Constitutional Court ruled that President Traian Basescu should represent the country at the EU 28-29 June summit but Victor Ponta ignored the ruling and went on his own for the meeting. He later threatened to replace the judges. In the evening he is expected to meet the media in Brussels together with European Parliament President Martin Schulz.

Today is a #Eurogroup day with two hot issues on the agenda. The first is #Greece's exit from the bailout programme. The other will take place in an expanded EU-format as it deals with the completion of the banking union and the reform of the #ESM. Although not on the agenda officially, another hot issue is the new government in Italy. Yesterday, President Sergio Mattarella gave Giuseppe Conte a mandate to form a coalition government between the populist M5S and the eurosceptic Lega. Stay tuned for live updates
