EU: Should the European Data Protection Supervisor resign?


Should the European Data Protection Supervisor resign? (Amberhawk, link):

"The current EDPS, Peter Hustinx, is well respected in the data protection community. His views are balanced, well thought out and skilfully delivered. If his advice continues to be ignored by the Commission on the scale that it is, then he can’t simply do the job he was employed to do. And Mr Hustinx knows full well that there are limits when employed to do an increasingly pointless non-job (i.e. advising the Commission on data protection). What the EDPS has also shown is that the Commission, when dealing with international data protection agreements, instinctively acts like a nomenklatura rather than a democratic institution."
