European Democracy Consulting provides its comments on the APPF’s reply in the framework of the European Ombudsman inquiry into its transparency practices.
Instead of the mere band-aid of transnational lists, let us reform EU parties and engage on a bold reform to engage citizens and make our election truly European.
Following a complaint by European Democracy Consulting, the European Ombudsman has announced the opening of an inquiry into the handling, by the European parties watchdog, of its transparency obligations.
A report highlights the failures of the European party watchdog to implement its transparency requirements under EU law. European Democracy Consulting lodged a complaint to the European Ombudsman on 26 June.
‘Transnational lists’ in European elections would mean creating a Europe-wide constituency to give citizens a chance to vote for common candidates, in addition to national ones. It is the most oft-discussed idea for making European elections ‘more European’. However, we should instead focus on developing pan-European political parties.
