 Subject:  Wake Up, Europe! European Citizens' Initiative
 Answer in writing 

Why has the Commission decided not to follow the internal procedure hitherto applied for the ‘Wake Up, Europe’ initiative (ECI(2015)000005) whereby admissibility was determined by the Secretary-General, so that now the decision has been taken by the College of Commissioners? And why has the College of Commissioners deviated from previous practice in this matter and not delegated the decision-making authority to the Secretary-General?

We had hoped for a reply on this matter in a previous question, but the Commission did not mention this in its response. Our question did not aim to discover whether, in the Commission's view, there existed a statutory procedure but why it had changed the previous procedure in connection with this particular initiative.
