4. Verification of credentials
CRE

All documents concerning the proclamation of election of Members would be forwarded to the committee responsible for verifying credentials, which would be set up pursuant to Rule 206.

Pursuant to Rule 3(2), until such time as Members' credentials had been verified or a ruling had been given on any dispute, Members would take their seats in Parliament and on its bodies and enjoy all the rights attaching thereto, provided that they had first signed the declaration of non-incompatibility.

Under Article 7 of the Act concerning the election of the members of the European Parliament by direct universal suffrage, Members performing duties incompatible with the office of a Member of the European Parliament would not be able to take up their seats. Members not yet having signed the declaration of non-incompatibility and not yet in a position to enjoy all their rights were therefore invited to sign the declaration immediately.
