Barnier soll Expertengruppen notfalls auflösen NGO: Die EU-Kommission als Geisel der Finanzindustrie Die Kommission hat keine Chance, den Finanzsektor grundlegend zu reformieren - wenn sie sich weiterhin auf Berater aus der Finanzindustrie verlässt, so der Lobby-Experte Yiorgos Vassalos im Gespräch mit EurActiv.de. Vassalos fordert die neue Kommission auf, neun beratende Gremien zu reformieren oder ganz aufzulösen, die von Konzernen dominiert seien. http://www.euractiv.de/zukunft-und-reformen/artikel/ngo-eu-kommission-is...
 

Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) today criticised the plenary vote of MEPs to approve the Jean-Claude Juncker Commission.
Attac Austria and Corporate Europe Observatory are today launching new 'wanted posters' about prospective members of the new European Commission, to expose details of their corporate backgrounds or other aspects of their careers which make them unsuitable to act as commissioner and promote the interests of 500 million European citizens.
The European Parliament has overwhelmingly voted in favour of freezing the budgets of the Commission's problematic advisory groups, formally known as Expert Groups. Surprisingly, this is the second time in four years that the Parliament has taken such a drastic step, after the Commission failed to tackle corporate domination within these influential groups (see graph below).
As part of her inquiry into the Commission's implementation of UN tobacco lobby rules, European Ombudsman Emily O'Reilly has asked Commission President Barroso for “a supplementary opinion” with proper answers to questions raised in her inquiry. O'Reilly took this step after having received a seriously unconvincing letter from Barroso that fails to address the specific questions and arguments put forward by CEO in the complaint that sparked the Ombudsman's inquiry.
