Quote: ...The consultation is to clarify what the text means when it says ordinary Europeans will have a direct influence on EU policy-making. European Policy Centre analyst Janis Emmanouilidis raises some questions: “When it says ‘a million signatures’, it does not say from how many countries; it does not specify how it garantees that these are original true signatures; it has to be defined in practice. What the Treaty also does not specify is what it means that the Commission is ‘invited’ to make a proposal. Is it obliged to draw up a proposal or is it only invited to do so. Many questions need to be settled, and the details figured out.”
