Parlamentin puhemies Martin Schulz kertoi toivovansa, että kompromissi Kreikan tilanteen ratkaisemiseksi saataisiin aikaan lähipäivinä, jotta maa voi pysyä euroalueen jäsenenä. Eurooppa-neuvoston kokouksen aluksi puhunut Schulz painotti, että riskit on punnittava tarkkaan ja että on tehtävä kaikki mahdollinen, etteivät kansalaiset, jotka eivät ole aikaansaaneet tilannetta, joudu vastuuseen siitä. Hänen mukaansa myös Kreikan velkatilanteen kestävyyttä olisi syytä parantaa. (Lue lisää: Schulz Kreikka-sopimuksesta: "Riskit tarpeen punnita tarkkaan" )

It “lacks any real ambition and failed to meet the demands of the organizers”, they add. ECIs enable citizens to ask the Commission to propose laws in areas within its competence, if they can muster at least one million signatures from at least a quarter of EU member states.
