New rules on funding European political parties

Met dank overgenomen van Europees Parlement (EP), EP-Commissie Constitutionele zaken (AFCO), gepubliceerd op donderdag 23 november 2017.

On 21 November, the AFCO Committee voted on the revision of the Regulation on the statute and funding of European political parties and European political foundations (Co-rapporteurs: Mercedes Bresso (S&D) and Rainer Wieland (EPP)). Since January this year, the Committee has been requesting a revision of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No. 1141/2014 as a matter of urgency. The main objectives of the reform are: to prevent abuses resulting from situations where MEPs, MPs or national parties support more than one European political party; to increase the proportionality of the EU funding to the representation of the European Parliament; and to enhance the transparency of funding by lowering co-financing required from the political parties.
