EU: European Parliament: MEPs push for tougher rule of law oversight


"The Parliament’s civil liberties committee wants measures to be ‘non-politically motivated.’... Members of the European Parliament stepped up pressure Tuesday for the EU to do more to ensure countries uphold the rule of law, saying the current procedure is ineffective and open to charges it can be politically motivated.

MEPs on the assembly’s civil liberties committee voted by a large majority on a proposal to establish a new system for monitoring whether EU members adhere to the bloc’s basic civil rights principles."
