EU legislation is created by the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union (EU-Council).
The European Parliament is directly elected, and serves the interest of the European people. The European Commission is directly accountable to this parliament. The EU-Council however is neither elected nor accountable. Its members are the governments of the member states. This means they serve the interests of those in power, not of the European people.
The EU-Council should be abolished, and its powers should be transferred to the parliament.
Member state governments can continue informal discussions in the European Council, but legislation should be voted on by an elected parliament, as is the case in any healthy democracy.
