MEPs call for better monitoring of rule of law


"Committee approves new mechanism to ensure fundamental rights. MEPs on Monday called for a better way to monitor rule of law and fundamental rights in EU member countries.

A proposed new mechanism, known as the EU Pact for Democracy, the Rule of Law and Fundamental Rights, was approved by the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs on Monday evening. It would consolidate a number of tools already in place, such as the Justice Scoreboard and the media pluralism monitor. A panel of independent experts would make country-specific recommendations during an annual fitness check of each member state."
