‘Not there yet’: Rule of law conditionality trilogues continue
The talks by the EP and Council will continue on Thursday when the co-legislators will meet for the fourth trilogue on mechanism to link the EU funds to the respect of rule of law.
After conclusion of the third round of informal legislative negotiations with the Council, EP negotiators yesterday said:
“Some progress was made today but we are not there yet. The EP’s position is clear: we need a functioning mechanism that works in practice and protects the final recipients of the EU money. 77% of the EU taxpayers have confirmed that this is what they expect from the EU legislators.”
The next round of informal inter-institutional negotiations is scheduled to take place on Thursday the 29th October.
