European Parliament Adopts Succession Proposal at First Reading
The European Parliament adopted today a legislative resolution at first reading on the regulation on successions (see the Declaration by the Danish Presidency of the Council and the background note). Amendments to the initial Commission's Proposal were drafted and discussed in the EP's JURI Committee (rapporteur: Kurt Lechner), that adopted a report on the regulation in its meeting of 1st March 2012, reflecting the agreement reached by the Parliament and the Council. Latest available document in the Council's register is doc. n. 6925/12 of 24 February 2012 (consolidated text confirmed by Coreper). The text adopted by the EP will be available soon on this page (UPDATE: provisional edition). According to current information, the final vote on the Regulation by the Council should be scheduled before the end of the Danish Presidency (30 June 2012).
