ND4E Petition has been declared admissible and will be discussed by the Committee on Petitions of the European Parliament next 20 June, 2016.
On April 20 the Petition New Deal 4 Europe (ND4E) has been declared admissible by the Commitee on Petitions of the European Parliament (EP) and has been sent to the European Commission, which shall give its opinion within next weeks. The Petition will be put on the agenda of the Committee on Petitions, that will open a discussion on it in the presence of MEPs belonging to other Committees, the European Commission and the petition promoters, next 20 June in Bruxelles at the European Parliament.
The impulse provided by Jo Leinen (MEP for the S&D, President of the European Movement International and former President of the EP Constitutional Affairs Committee) has been successful. But this success is mainly due to the large international lineup composed of trade unions, civil society movements, personalities of the political and cultural world and MEPs which the ND4E European Committee has put together.
The imminent conclusion of the work of the Commission on European budget own resources, chaired by Mario Monti, and the review of the Multi-annual Financial Framework scheduled for the end of the year, are opportunities that can allow us to intervene and have an influence on the decisions that are now on the political agenda.
