Implementing the Lisbon Treaty: European Parliament

The Committee on Constitutional Affairs of the European Parliament (AFCO) voted Monday 9 March 2009 on three reports we have written about in earlier blog posts, namely the Dehaene report on institutional balance, the Leinen report on the EP’s new role implementing the Lisbon Treaty and the Brok report on relations between the European Parliament and the national parliaments.

Fortunately at least the European Parliament is showing interest in the Lisbon Treaty issues requiring implementation, if the amending treaty enters into force.

At this moment we have no comparable indications on preparatory work from the Commission or the Council.
