Former Slovak prime minister says EU in danger of split

Former Slovak Prime Minister and head of the Smer parliamentary party, Robert Fico, has said Western leaders do not realise the danger they are putting the future of the EU in if they do not think about restoring harmony.

The lack of agreement in decision-making by EU leaders, coupled with veto power, is a great obstacle to the normal functioning of the union, the former Slovak prime minister said.

“The great Western leaders do not realise the danger they are putting the future of the entire EU at risk if they do not immediately stop the discussion on the possible abolition [of the principle – Ed.] of collective consent,” Fico said.

According to him, confidence in EU institutions is already riddled. The former Slovak prime minister argues that the veto power of EU member states is of great importance in the practical life of the union.

It should be reminded that such statements from European politicians and officials started to be heard following the news about the possible transformation of the decision-making procedure of the EU members, when the principle of mandatory collective agreement of the countries may be replaced by the majority principle.
