Primary Ideas : Conor Slowey

Conor Slowey, writing in his blog The European Citizen, offers some interesting ideas as to how PES primaries might be organised. He also raises the wider issue of how the European Commision might develop as a democratic EU government elected out of and by the European Parliament and what this might mean for the relationships between the leading parties in the parliament.

Conor ends his article with the observation:

As the Commission becomes more accountable to the European Parliament, and its membership a question at the European elections, the rationale for allowing its membership to almost automatically mirror the Council's will be increasingly undermined.
