Program of Emmanuel Macron on European institutions:
Refuse UK access to the Single Market after Brexit
In the Brexit discussion, we will defend the integrity of the European single market. All companies accessing them must be subject to the same disciplines.
Give the euro zone a budget, a parliament and a minister of economy and finance
We will propose to create a budget for the euro area with 3 functions (future investments, emergency financial assistance and response to economic crises). Access to this budget will depend on compliance with common tax and social rules (to avoid dumping within the euro area).
We will propose the creation of a position of eurozone minister of the economy and finance, who will be responsible for the euro area budget, under the supervision of a eurozone parliament, bringing together the european parliamentarians from the member states .
73 MEPs in the European parliament in 2019
We will put in place European lists to elect the 73 MEPs corresponding to the British seats in the European Parliament. If the timetable of the Brexit negotiations allows, this change can take place in the European elections of June 2019. [?¿]
Construct a new European project with citizen consultations
We will propose to our partners to launch democratic consultations throughout the EU by the end of 2017.
For a period of six to ten months, in each State, in a manner respecting local governments and authorities prerogatives, a European debate will be held on the content of the Union's action and the priorities it must have. Building on these debates, European governments will draw up a short road map, with some common challenges and specific actions, laying down the Union's priorities for action and their implementation timetable for the next five years. [...]
These consultations will lead to a project that will then be adopted by all countries that so wish. No Member State will have the power to block this new stage.
