The democratic swindle of the #spitzenkandidat .
(expanded version).
#democracy #EUelections2019
"Legally, the European Council makes the proposal, and the Parliament votes on it. The Treaty does NOT say that the European Council may propose only candidates who have been presented before as spitzenkandidat. Such process would illegally limit the European Council’s power.
The European Parliament cannot claim simultaneously that it imposes the parameters applied to choose the candidates and then votes on them. There must be a balance between the two institutions and the Spitzenkandidat system does not respect it."
"Merkel, Thorning-Schmidt, Jourova, Malmstrom, Vestager, Krybautskaite, Lagarde or Georgieva... These names are given because, this time, most of the best potential candidates are women. It would be a shame if one of them at least did not become president of one institution."
