Democratic decision making: Majority instead of unanimity decisions
As a democratic union of democratic states the European Union should make its decisions in a democratic way. This means that the decision making in the Commission, in the Parliament and especially in the Council should happen by majority vote. The minority has to be bound by law to abide by the voting results. This is how democracy works!
The abolishment of the unanimity principle should take place in every institution and in every policy field (especially in foreign and taxation affairs). Which questions will require a simple, an absolute or a two thirds majority is a totally different question.
