Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament: No European Parliament secret ballot on the EU Budget


It is vital that the European Parliament, the only democratically accountable EU institution, has the very highest standards of openness and transparency. Hence the use of a secret ballot procedure to decide its position on the 7-year budget (financial perspectives) of the European Union is unacceptable.

Letter to
President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz
The vote in the European Parliament on the EU budget (financial perspectives) must NOT be taken by secret ballot. EU citizens demand the very highest standards of openness and transparency from the European Parliament.
