Giving the European Parliament the right of legislative initiative
Although the European Parliament now has important powers, it does not yet have a formal right of legislative initiative. It is true that the Commission’s proposals are the result of numerous interactions with the European Parliament and the Member States. However, as Parliament is the only European insitution whose members are directly elected by direct universal suffrage, granting this right to MEPs would further strengthen their legitimacy & would strengthen the link between citizens and the EU.
