How does the Parliament work?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Parliament's work comprises two main stages:

  • Committees - to prepare legislation.
    The Parliament numbers 20  committees and three subcommittees, each handling a particular policy area. The committees examine proposals for legislation, and MEPs and political groups can put forward amendments or propose to reject a bill. These issues are also debated within the political groups.
  • Plenary sessions  – to pass legislation.
    This is when all the MEPs gather in the chamber to give a final vote on the proposed legislation and the proposed amendments. Normally held in Strasbourg for four days a month, but sometimes there are additional sessions in Brussels.

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

In the Council of the EU, informally also known as the Council, government ministers from each EU country meet to discuss, amend and adopt laws, and coordinate policies. The ministers have the authority to commit their governments to the actions agreed on in the meetings.

What do you know about the Composition of the EP?

Lösung anzeigen

The number of MEPs for each country is roughly proportionate to its population, but this is by degressive proportionality: no country can have fewer than 6 or more than 96 MEPs and the total number cannot exceed 705 (704 plus the President). MEPs are grouped by political affiliation, not by nationality.

The President  represents Parliament to other EU institutions and the outside world and gives the final go-ahead to the EU budget.
