Question for written answer E-010059-14
to the Commission
Rule 130
Georgios Katrougkalos (GUE/NGL) , Emmanouil Glezos (GUE/NGL) , Kostas Chrysogonos (GUE/NGL) , Kostadinka Kuneva (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Decision-making in the Troika
 Answer in writing 

With the verification of measures implementing the memorandum of understanding for Greece now in its final stages, the Greek press is constantly reporting on additional demands being made by the Troika (IMF, ECB and Commission) on the Greek Government, including a reconfiguration of the insurance system and a return to the legalisation of lock-outs.

Apparently these new requirements do not relate to existing commitments under previous memorandums, giving rise to questions as to the reasons for them and how to ensure their democratic legitimisation. Furthermore, no indication has yet been given by the Commission as to how its representatives and those of the European Central Bank select matters for negotiation, particularly in response to the views expressed by the International Monetary Fund.

In view of this:
1. Have the requirements formulated by Commission representatives during negotiations within the Troika been submitted to the Commission as a whole and approved by it?
2. Which EU body is responsible for deciding on the course of action to be adopted in cases where the International Monetary Fund formulates different requirements?
3. Does the Commission believe that the procedures followed are in accordance with the European Parliament resolutions on the role and operations of the Troika and on constitutional problems of a multi-tier governance in the European Union (2012/20778(INI))?
