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 ...

8 August 2014 12:26 Viktor Orban: It's Time for Regime Change!

Still not having completely experienced the taste of democracy, market economy and European values the Hungarians are again going through a regime change less than 30 years after the previous one. This was made crystal clear by another daring speech by Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban on 26 ...

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 ...

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 ...

28 July 2014 14:24 Ashton's Successor Is Key to EU Security

On 30 August, the heads of state will gather for an extraordinary summit to decide who should take Catherine Ashton's post of EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Herman Van Rompuy's as president of the European Council. Such a decision was expected at the previous extraordinary summit ...

17 July 2014 16:46 MEPs from EPP Group Asked Juncker To Create a European History Portfolio

A group of EPP MEPs have sent a letter to the new European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, asking him the new European Commission to pay special attention on the legacy of totalitarian regimes and their crimes.

#euco Structural reforms and sound public finances are the key conditions for investment. This is the main conclusion of the heads of state or government of the EU in Brussels. It makes it clear that there will be no change to the existing rules in the Stability and Growth Pact. The main focus of the summit was on energy security and climate targets.

Adelina Marini #euco @David_Cameron: "Of course in an organisation like this, when your economy grows a little faster or your economy grows a little slower there are adjustments. And there can be adjustments every year. And we've seen them. Sometimes you pay a little bit more, sometimes you pay a little bit less. But it has never been the case that a 2 billion euro bill has suddenly been presented"
