The German President of the Bundestag Wolfgang Schäuble has spoken, that the EU decisions, unanimity is repealed.
"the principle of Unanimity means that the Slowest anything can block," said the CDU politician on Monday in the info radio by rbb. "That's why we need a System of majority decisions, qualified majority decisions." In the "Europe party, the CDU/CSU" is not going to fail such a Reform for sure.
With a view to the European elections in just under three months, said Schäuble: "If the result in Europe would be a choice that the European Parliament would have a strong minority or even a majority of euro-sceptic MEPs, so the members who are not for European Integration, then of course that would be for the European Union something very Fateful."

Schaeuble said at the same time, to transfer parts of the national financial and economic policy on the level of the European institutions. Only if this succeeds, one could also introduce an EU Finance Ministers. "As long as you don't have that, a Minister of Finance alone. Because it is then only a Symbol that has no skills." A European Minister of Finance need a European budget, need European revenue and need the appropriate skills. Schäuble was, until 2017, some eight years, the Federal Minister of Finance. (nag/sda)
