Obstacles to a strengthened role for national parliaments in the EU

21 May 2014 - 11:54

Calls for greater involvement of national parliaments in the European Union are growing in several European capitals. In The Hague, Minister of Foreign Affairs Frans Timmermans recently argued that national parliaments are the most pertinent place in which the democratic deficit of the EU could be reduced. There is considerable support for strengthening the accountability of ‘Brussels’ at the national level. In the context of deepened integration national parliaments will increasingly find themselves side-lined. We question whether they — and in particular the Dutch parliament — can exercise much influence from such a position. Or are national parliaments to far removed from supranational European issues to be able to democratically monitor European decision-making effectively?

This project started back in 1991 in Cameroon Africa. A lot of effort was invested to make ginger root part of a daily diet. The originality of Gingerblaast products is the use of the fresh-squeezed extract of ginger roots.

Mark always had a competitive nature, a passion for music and the love of helping people. From playing all types of sports, to working with special need children, or playing the drums as a small kid. With it all, one thing that will never leave Mark is his passion for music. Mark’s inspiration for music started at a young age.

Are you considering all options and comparing everything before you start? We also. You may not care about what we think is important. And maybe you want to spend more on a product that is more to your liking than we would like. And that's just it, there are so many differences in people, products, prices, quality, and so on.
