Reinvigorating European elections : the implications of electing the European Commission

Author: Julie Smith
Publisher: London : Chatham House ; Washington, D.C. : Distributed worldwide by the Brookings Institution, 2005.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"For a quarter of a century Europe's citizens have been able to elect Members of the European Parliament.

Yet, rather than generating interest in European political affairs, EP elections have been characterized by low turnout and a focus on national rather than European affairs. At the same time, there are claims that the European Union is suffering from a 'democratic deficit'.

What can be done to overcome these problems?"

"This Special Paper argues that European elections should contribute directly to the formation of the European Commission, a key part of the Union's executive.

This could be done by direct or indirect election of the Commission President or of the whole College of Commissioners, depending on whether one favours a parliamentary or a presidential system of government."--Jacket.  Read more...
