In the Bruselské chlebíčky podcast, the head of the Brussels office of the EUROPEUM think-tank comments on the situation with the upcoming European Presidency. The incoming Spanish presidency is currently open-ended, due to the upcoming Spanish elections, and the Hungarian presidency next year is one that MEPs would prefer to abolish altogether.
The biggest concern that is being voiced in Brussels about this is that the legislation that is in the pipeline will be finalised and if there is no political will and leadership on the part of the country holding the presidency, this could cause major problems in the adoption of the legislation.
