European Parliament - Increase Of Jurisdiction And Real Power


  • Danijela Jacimovic


The latest changes contained in the Lisbon Treaty continue the tradition of increasing of both, the jurisdiction and the institutional position and power of the Parliament, in relation to other institutions. This Treaty extends the jurisdiction of the Parliament that in the legislative process becomes the main legislator together with the Council, the dominant participant in the decision making regarding the European budget, and the importance of this institution as a political controller is increased in the work of EU institutions. The introduced changes strongly improve the position of the Parliament in the EU institutional system, and thereby all shortcomings of the previous Treaties, which can be defined as a "democratic deficit", were tried to be removed.
