Europe was built as an economic organization after the Second World War. Her first name was European-Tax-Union (EWG) in 1964. It was a connection between France and Germany in the economic sector. Before this happened the European Union was only an idea, also a definition of a continent. The next step was the enlargement of the compact in the year 1967 the needing of more administration grew. Also the topics were extended in this development, because parallel the conclusion of the European Tax Union, the “Montanunion” and the EURATOM was made.
In the year of 1972 the countries Great Britain, Denmark, Ireland and Norway comes to the European Union. In 1979 the member countries vote for the first in direct choice the member of the European Parliament.
The Structure of the European Union
The European Union was constituted as international institution with independent members. For specific themes they have institutions. In article 7 of the EG-Trade the organs of the contract are known. The European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Consult, the European Judgement Court and the European Financial Court. On the economic sector the contract sees more regulation instruments. The article 8 declares the foundation of the European Central Bank where the reserves for the European Union are hold and proofs the stability in the member countries. Of this reason the ECB is also the controller about the stability compact. Also the Bank of investigations which is confirmed by the article 9 of the EC-Compact, has only the ability in the regulation of the compact. Of this reason the European Union isn’t a federal system like Germany or the United States of America.
Transparency of the European Parliament
Because of this the European Parliament have another definition of the Quorum and the weights of the votes. The candidates are also members of parties on the international issues, comparable with the national parties. But their candidates are more dependent of their home-countries and are selected by a fixed quote (see article 190 EC-Compact). The quote exists of the reason of the different number of citizens in the specific member country. The fairness of this system results of the economic strength and the fairness of the economic compact. In the last year different movements in the European countries are born, which wanted to get more influence and more transparency of the parliamentary decisions. The transparency of the parliament can be matched by different variables. On the scientific sector the searcher can fix the transparency with the numbers of the votes, the meetings, the reports, the period of the meetings and the influences of the other institutions of the decisions. These numeral methods are very clear, but sometimes they cover developments. Of this reason it is really important to ask the right questions and don’t be silent about consequences of the quantitative system. Then the rules and rights are only a try of arrangement of a complex system and the right mind of the institutional characters comes with right thinking peoples. In the opposite there’re qualitative methods, which work with all information in context sentences. The consequence of this method is the amount of information, which aggravate the conclusion. In the end, it is really important to accept the rights of the actors, the countries, and also to avoid a damage of the functionality of the European Union.
