Commission Decision on the registration of the proposed citizens' initiative: COMMISSION DECISION

Subject-matter: European Union Citizenship
Main objectives: EU citizens elect the European Parliament and participate in its work, thus exercising treaty rights, enhancing Union democracy, and reinforcing its citizenship. Noting the ECJ’s view of Union citizenship as a ‘fundamental status’ of nationals of Member States, and that Brexit will strip millions of EU citizens of this status and their vote in European elections, requests the Commission propose means to avoid risk of collective loss of EU citizenship and rights, and assure all EU citizens that, once attained, such status is permanent and their rights acquired.
Provisions of the Treaties considered relevant by the organisers: TFEU Article 20
