144 views

Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, Spokeperson for José Manuel Barroso, President f the EC, gives José Manuel Barroso's statement on the ruling of the Czech Constitutional Court on the Lisbon Treaty. The Czech Republic's Constitutional Court ruled that the European Union's Lisbon Treaty does not clash with the Czech constitution, allowing the pact's ratification which now only needs to be signed by Czech president Vaclav Klaus, a treaty opponent. At their summit in Brussels the 29/10/2009, leaders of EU member states agreed to an opt-out from a part of the Lisbon Treaty, the Charter of Fundamental Rights, which Vaclav Klaus views as a threat to Czech citizens' property rights. The highest Czech court, based in Brno, ruled in 2008 that key elements of the treaty were in accordance with the constitution. The ruling of 27/10/2009 was in response to a second challenge to the treaty.
