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 ...

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 ...

21 August 2014 12:59 Is Angela Merkel the New EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs?

The EU is facing three huge foreign policy crises with potentially tragic consequences for security. Alas, these crises have again revealed the Union's incapability to act as a community. Until recently the main speakers on the Eastern crisis were the Baltic states, Poland and Sweden. On the cri ...

#CVM #Bulgaria government has decided today to establish a new anti-corruption body which, however, will have only consulting, coordinating and controlling functions. The national council for anti-corruption policies will develop and implement policies aimed at prevention and counteraction to corruption. Head of the new body will be the deputy prime minister for coordination of European policies and institutional affairs, Meglena Kuneva and her deputy will be the minister of justice. There will be a civil council attached to that body. The new structure seems too far from what neighbouring Romania has and which already has tangible progress in the fight against corruption
