10 July 2015 11:03 Who Is Guy Verhofstadt?

It is extremely rare for Bulgarian society to get inflamed over a European subject and even rarer to be impressed by a European leader. It is Guy Verhofstadt who managed to accomplish that. His speech in the European Parliament on Wednesday morning during the debate with Greek Prime Minister Ale ...

25 November 2014 16:41 The Non-Confidence Vote Against Juncker's Commission - Great Interest but not Interesting

The first one hundred days not having passed yet and the first political European Commission was subjected to a non-confidence vote because of its President Jean-Claude Juncker - a former prime minister and minister of finance of Luxembourg several terms in a row - who is deemed responsible ...

7 November 2014 10:44 The First Political European Commission Will Work for Triple A Social Rating

On 1 November, the new and quite different European Commission has started work, led by the veteran European politician Jean-Claude Juncker. This is the date that marks the beginning of a huge change in the EU toward creation of genuine European politics. Should this be perceived in some member ...

14 October 2014 12:09 From Magna Carta to Indyref

A 307-years-old union was put to its biggest test since its inception but the British have again proved that they are the creators of the modern democracy. The referendum on 18 September on Scotland's independence was a true lesson in democracy, especially at a time when it is seriously threaten ...

16 September 2014 19:06 Finally a Strong and Government-like European Commission

Jean-Claude Juncker has proved, again, to be a master of compromise. The composition of the new European Commission, the distribution of portfolios and the new structure reveal the veteran prime minister's exceptional skills to manoeuvre among many and various interests. For the first time, the ...

10 December 2014 09:23 The New European Council President Donald Tusk Is a Fighter against Hopelessness and Monotony

The first week of change in EU is already a fact. As of 1 December, at the helm of the European Council - the most powerful and policy-defining body in the EU - has stood Donald Tusk, the former prime minister of Poland. His very first activities set the tone of a significant change of the post, ...

25 November 2014 13:55 Can We Trust the Member States for the European Prosecutor's Office?

The more the discussions in the various EU formats deepen on the European Commission's proposal for a single European Prosecution's Office, the more the disagreements and uncertainties. The Italian presidency aims to accelerate the negotiations in the Council but it seems that they will continue ...

14 October 2014 15:05 Tibor Navracsics Is the Elephant in EU Room

The European Parliament has created an odd precedent by half approving (not final) Hungary's candidate for EU Commissioner Tibor Navracsics, whom the new European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker entrusted the Education, Culture, Youth and Citizenship portfolio. And the inherent duplici ...

10 October 2014 18:21 Federica Mogherini Is the Right Person for the Job

Around the selection of a new high representative for the EU foreign and security policy the thought that this post is usually given to a person with no foreign policy experience frequently crosses one's mind. This was the case with the first high rep after the introduction of this post with the ...

15 September 2014 11:40 The Point of No Return

In the EU, there is also a process of realisation of the threat Russia represents. Alas, the divergence in the way the Eastern crisis is being interpreted is still huge in the member states. The good news is that this is a major pillar in the new European Council president's mandate. The bad new ...

The #migrant route toward Europe has shifted through the Western Balkans, The New York Times reports. The newspaper quotes Hungarian authorities, who claim the shift of migrant flows is due to some extent to the many drownings in the Mediterranean, to the more centralised policy of the EU as well as the tightening of visa regime in Middle East countries. Another reason is that Bulgaria has significantly tightened border control, as well as Iran. Between January and June 79,000 people crossed illegally from Turkey into Greece, according to Frontex. Some of them continued through Macedonia and Serbia to Hungary. NYT writes that the shift is already causing sharp rises of the anti-migrant sentiments in the Balkans and is boosting nationalist parties euinsi.de/udqK

The #Greek parliament has approved the conditions the euro area demanded to be voted on before starting negotiations on a third bailout programme. In the early hours of Thursday the parliament in Athens voted the measures with 229 MPs supporting the prior actions, the Kathimerini newspaper reported. 64 members of the party of PM Alexis Tsipras, SYRIZA, voted against the package. All MPs from the coalition partner Independent Greeks supported the legislation. The newspaper commented that with such support the government has received a mandated to continue to govern. Now the Eurogroup has to give a mandate for a start of the negotiations on a third bailout programme. However, in some member states this needs parliamentary approval
