European Commission, Council and Parliament

The European Commission is the politically independent executive body of the EU. It is solely responsible for drafting proposals for new European legislation and implements decisions of the European Parliament and the EU Council. The Commission is divided into policy departments, known as Directorates-General (DGs), which are responsible for different policy areas. DGs develop, implement and manage EU policy, law and funding programmes.

The Council of EU is the place where ministers from all EU Member States gather to discuss legislation, its amendments and adoption and policy coordination. Ministers are authorised to oblige their governments to act in line with the agreements reached during meetings. The Council is assisted by the Committee of the Permanent Representatives of the Governments of the Member States to the European Union (Coreper) and more than 150 highly specialised working groups and committees, known as “Council’s preparatory bodies,” in which Hanfa actively participates.

The European Parliament is an important forum for political debate and decision-making at the EU level. The Parliament acts as a co-legislator, sharing with the Council the authority to adopt and amend legislative proposals and decide on the EU budget. It also supervises the work of the Commission and other EU bodies, and cooperates with and receives input from the national parliaments of EU Member States.
