Ryszard Czarnecki: Lack of cooperation is a negative sign to the citizens of the Union

Ryszard Czarnecki: Lack of cooperation of the European Council and the Council with the discharge authority is a negative sign to the citizens of the Union

Today the European Parliament’s Budgetary Control Committee has voted to refuse discharge* for the European Council and Council, following Ryszard Czarnecki MEP’s recommendation. The Vice-President of the European Parliament, and European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) Group Coordinator in the committee, underlines that this decision was caused by repeated difficulties in the discharge procedure and lack of cooperation of the Council. The plenary vote is supposed to take place at the end of October.

In his report Mr Czarnecki points out a lack of cooperation from the European Council and Council which did not provide the Parliament with their annual activity report. Hence, the ECR Group Coordinator underlines that Parliament refused to grant discharge to the Secretary-General of the Council in relation to the financial years 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 and postponed its decision on granting the Secretary-General of the Council discharge in relation to the financial year 2014.

Mr Czarnecki said: “Council’s failure to submit the requested documents to Parliament above all undermines the right of citizens of the Union to information and transparency and is becoming a cause for concern, reflecting as it does a certain democratic deficit within the Union institutions”.

The Vice-President of the European Parliament underlines that the expenditure of the Council must be scrutinised in the same way as that of other institutions and that the fundamental elements of such scrutiny have been laid down in its discharge resolutions of the past years.

“A lack of cooperation by the European Council and the Council with the discharge authority is a negative signal to the citizens of the Union”, Mr Czarnecki said.
