The European Parliament, your legislator
Each proposal from the European Commission has to be submitted to the European Parliament. The task of the Parliament's members is to discuss the content of each proposal and amend it where they deem necessary. Finally it is put to the vote in plenary. The European Parliament then negotiates with the Council of the European Union to agree on the final wording of the law. Parliament's formal approval is also needed to finally enact the law. It's an exciting process, and we invite you to come and find out about all of its aspects.
