ČT24 | Candidates for the European Parliament elections

In the Czech Republic and Slovakia, this interest is the lowest compared to other European countries.

Respekt | Is the veto fulfilling its function in EU or has it become a tool for blackmail?

Although Viktor Orbán didn't make good on his threat to veto the EU aid proposal for Ukraine, his actions have opened a debate on the need for a veto in the EU.

In addition to it, unanimity may be threatened by the so-called blocking minority, in which a group of at least four states representing at least 35% of the EU population can prevent a proposal from being presented. Viktor Daněk, deputy director of the EUROPEUM Institute, commented on the Czech Republic's position in the EU and the possible reform of the approval mechanisms for the weekly Respekt.
