“Intensive dialogue”

The Way Council after his appointment by the former EPP boss Joseph Daul “entered into an intensive, emotional, even controversial dialogue. And in my opinion they also brought something further. Then came Donald Tusk – and suddenly everything broke off. I found that very strange, “said bowl.

The Way Council has “made a number of recommendations”, some of which have been adopted, said bowl. “Among other things, those relating to judicial reform, administrative jurisdiction – have been permanently withdrawn. It has also been accepted that European judgments must be implemented in any case. That has been done,” said bowl.
