European Parliament stands up for the rule of law and future generations

MFF

"The Council's vision for the MFF does not match the scope of the challenges before us. The reductions in grants over loans does not go far enough to support the long term needs of the recovery. Countries that have chosen frugality over solidarity do so at the expense of European unity. It is now up to the European Parliament to stand up for the rule of law and to invest in future generations", says Philippe Lamberts, co-President of the Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament.

"In exchange for a smaller recovery fund and higher rebates the rule of law mechanism was significantly watered down. The rule of law conditionality remains too fuzzy to constitute a real lever to bring Member States to respect what they signed up for when becoming members" says Philippe Lamberts, Co-President of the Greens/EFA group.
