#EP2014: For More or Less Europe

How will the balance of power change in the European Parliament? Who will become president of the European Commission? For a looser or a more integrated Union will the citizens vote in the European elections, which will take place in all the 28 member states on May 22-25? Those are the main questions we will be seeking answers to in this subject. Hashtag on Twitter #EP2014
18 July 2014 13:13 The Juncker Precedent

There is no doubt that the European Parliament has won this time in the battle with the Council. However, there is a danger this victory to prove Pyrrhic. Jean-Claude Juncker has already been elected president of the European Commission, but the way the European Parliament tried to trade it ...

1 June 2014 11:03 We Apologise, Dear Readers, But We Can't

The European elections have ended and euinside has already done its first analyses. We did for Croatia as well, one of the two places we cover directly. However, this has proved a mission impossible for the voting in Bulgaria. The problem is that euinside has two audiences - Bulgarian and the mu ...

31 May 2014 20:04 Is It Time for a Frexit?

In the peak of the eurozone crisis often the word grexit (Greece+exit) could be heard. The word emerged when the revelations about the real condition of the Greek economy became so many and so hard to comprehend that many analysts believed that it would be easier Greece to survive an exit of the ...

28 May 2014 11:35 #EP2014 in Croatia: Peculiarities of Political Survival

The news from the elections for the European Parliament in Croatia are many, but three emerge as the biggest. The first is that voter turnout has increased insignificantly, which refutes last year's excuses that it was low because of the too short campaign. This year, when the Croats voted for a ...

13 May 2014 13:52 Guy Verhofstadt Promotes Internet Union - Less Cows and More Internet

Lately, in the EU, there is a very strong fashion trend - the more the desire for deepening of the integration is weakening, the more ideas emerge for "unioning". In this way, while the last negotiations on the establishment of the banking union were going on, because of the crisis in Ukraine Po ...

9 June 2014 17:09 The Wrong Battle for the European Commission

Both the European Council and the Parliament have gone too far. The saga with the election of the next European Commission chief has revealed quite a ridiculous power bickering between the Council and the European Parliament, as both sides are twisting the hands of each other. Everything st ...

31 May 2014 21:25 Why Is Merkel Growingly Standing Behind Jean-Claude Juncker?

Before the beginning of the EU summit on May 27th, when the outcome of the European elections on May 22-25 was discussed, German Chancellor Angela Merkel answered the question whether she will back the EPP nomination for European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker or she would succumb to Briti ...

29 May 2014 12:40 EU Is Looking for a Button for Its Overcoat

Instead of the opposite - the button to be looking for an overcoat, the leaders of the EU member states ruled that a button will be sought for an overcoat that is yet to be sewn. This is a relatively precise summary of the outcome of the informal dinner of the heads of state or government of the ...

27 May 2014 13:07 #EP2014: Two Parallel Worlds

The European Parliament elections this year, for the first time, moved in two speeds. One was the traditional national campaigns and the other was the common European election campaign. The overlap between the two speeds was small and sporadic which, again, revealed the big controversy of t ...

8 May 2014 15:06 A European Union of Zombies

There is no doubt that what awaits the EU and the member states after the European elections in the end of May this year will be a huge test for the Union's system of values. In the best case scenario, what awaits the Union will neither be more nor less Europe but rather more sobering and pragma ...

The #Eurogroup finance ministers are gathering today for their regular meeting with a main issue on the agenda the 2nd review of the 3rd bailout programme for #Greece. There is another issue hanging in the air, which is not on the agenda - will the Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem remain on the position as chair of the Eurogroup since his party sustained huge losses at the parliamentary elections in the Netherlands last week. For now, a Tusk-effect is not visible but all minsters praise Dijsslbloem as a brilliant chief of the Eurogroup. Everyone, however, refuse to forecast whether he will stay even after his mandate runs out in January.
