Today’s excellent Charlemagne @duncanrobinson prompted me to write an article of my own; on the Council as an unidentified governing object (UGO).

I think @Europarl_EN should ask the Venice Commission to assess the EU’s separation of powers.

Nope. Gvt leaders can be at natl level, but EUCO and its members are untouchable. As to Bundestag: it is a parliamentary body, a legislator. Not an executive. Ultimately it is about trias politica

@SophieintVeld Is it right to say EUCO can't be voted out of office? Its members can be. One wouldn't say e.g. the Bundestag can't be voted out of office.

@SophieintVeld But isn't it ironically powerless, or rather overpowered, in the face of the existential threats Europe has been facing since 2008? All this summitry hasn't solved a single of our mist pressing problems.

Indeed. (but it didn't fit into my tweet anymore). It has absolute power, and achieves absolutely nothing with it. It is paralysed and sclerotic

EUCO is an UGO: Unidentified Governing Object. Not a legislator, not an executive. With no mandate of its own, no accountability to anyone, cannot be voted out of office. Several of its members are autocrats or crooks. Yet it has massive, and absolute power.

This piece is really excellent by @duncanrobinson on the many serious problems with the European Council. “Summits suck attention, and with it legitimacy, from the rest of the system, where MEPs and ministers grind out eu law.” 👇

Aanrader:@BetrouwbareB met Richard Barrett van @VeniceComm. Zijn gedegen, genuanceerde en zorgvuldige reflectie op de rechtsstaat en constitutionele principes is een weldaad in het verhitte debat, en herinnert fijntjes aan waar “democratische rechtsstaat” ook weer over gaat.

Behind the scenes, @eucopresident Charles Michel is desperately trying to keep the #Poland rule of law issue out of tomorrow's #EUCO summit.

But an alliance of countries including 🇳🇱,🇧🇪 & 🇸🇪 will insist it be discussed and are expected to push to use budget conditionality on 🇵🇱.

Finally!

The @Europarl_EN shows its teeth and will bite: we will sue the @EU_Commission for not doing its duty, which is to uphold the Rule of Law and apply EU law.

It’s just mind boggling we need to take our once close ally on EU values to @EUCourtPress for this 🤯

Goed en alarmered stuk van @LuukvMiddelaar. Trump’s trawanten streven ook in Europa naar de afbraak van democratie. Zoals US Republicans Trump de hand boven het hoofd houden, laat de Europese Raad v regeringleiders de autocraten in eigen kring ongemoeid. Houtrot in de democratie

@SophieintVeld @EU_Commission So, @SophieintVeld and other MEPs, it’s now up to you to show your ‘power’ as a parlement by filling a proposal to start an Article 7 procedure. Are you allowed to do that, anyways?

The Council is ignoring the Rule of Law Crisis, because it is implicated. The Commission isn’t acting yet, but it should. Thirdly, Parliament has to make sure the Commission finally starts acting, by holding her to account. 👇🏻

The European Council flatly refuses to tackle the destruction of the rule of law. Unsurprising, as the main offenders are sitting on that same European Council. Even today, government leaders prefer to appease the autocrats, keeping the matter off the agenda.

Sophie in 't Veld (D66) di 19 okt 2021, 11:25

President Von der Leyen is “concerned”, but has announced no action. @EU_Commission must do whatever it takes to halt the destruction of the rules of law. Anything less would be dereliction of duty, and would merit the ultimate political consequence.

The speech of @MorawieckiM is the ultimate proof that Merkel is wrong: “dialogue” with the Polish government in reality is dialogue between the deaf.

Irony: Polish government has challenged Rule of Law conditionality for the EU budget (no ⚖️= no 💶) before the CJEU, but that same Polish government does not recognise the authority of the CJEU. So no need for @vonderleyen to wait for CJEU ruling then to apply RoL conditionality
