ECI and petitions – giving citizens a voice

Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič

Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič took part in the meeting of the European Parliament's petitions committee (PETI) on Tuesday to discuss the new European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) and how it can complement petitions in helping give a voice to the concerns of EU citizens. With the first ECI – on student mobility – due to be registered on Wednesday, V-P Šefčovič took the opportunity to share with MEPs the benefits of such citizen-led initiatives, and pledged to continue the Commission's close cooperation with Parliament on this issue.
