Candidate selection procedures for the European elections

This study was prepared by the Centre d'étude de la vie politique (Cevipol), part of the Institute for European Studies (IEE) and the Faculté des sciences sociales et politiques (FSP) of the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB). It provides a systematic and thorough account of candidate selection procedures for the European elections. It covers four aspects: (1) a general overview of candidate selection procedures in the major parties of all EU Member States; (2) a detailed account of the candidate selection procedures for a sample of countries/parties, based on an analysis of the formal and informal practices; (3) an investigation into the relations between national political parties, political groups in the EP, and the European political parties; and (4) the provision of recommendations as to how to improve the democratic quality of candidate selection for the European elections.

Velkommen til Udvalget om Konstitutionelle Anliggenders webside.

I valgperioden 2014-2019 vil der blive fokuseret på de institutionelle aspekter, der er bestemmende for EU's fremtid. Vi vil fortsætte med at evaluere gennemførelsen af de fornyelser, der blev indført med Lissabontraktaten, og bruge denne vurdering som basis for nye udviklingstendenser. Evalueringen af de foranstaltninger, der blev iværksat efter krisen i 2008, vil også føre til overvejelser af, om det er nødvendigt med en ny reform af traktaten. Der skulle være to formål med en sådan reform, nemlig at integrere bestemmelserne i den mellemstatslige traktat om stabilitet, samordning og styring i Den Økonomiske og Monetære Union i EU's retsregler, hvilket måske vil kræve traktatændringer, og at give den økonomiske styring af euroområdet demokratisk legitimitet. En vigtig udfordring vil det være at sikre, at en stærkere integration af euroområdet ikke underminerer EU's integritet.
