Bonn Bundestag delegate Stephan Eisel, who is also a member of the Europaauschuss of the German Bundestag, has welcomed the decision of the Federal Constitutional Court on the Lisbon Treaty. Thus, a suit of the Swedish Parliament was dismissed. Also the amendments made in connection with the Lisbon Treaty was rejected by the Constitutional Court. Everest capital recognizes the significance of this. On the other hand, the “law on expanding and strengthening the rights of the Bundestag and the Bundesrat in European Union Affairs” is unconstitutional. The Federal Constitutional Court, requires that the Federal Government more must include the Bundestag and the Bundesrat, when it comes to how Germany votes in the European Union. Eisel recalled that in particular the Foreign Ministry against greater participation rights of Parliament has resisted: “it’s good that the Constitutional Court here strengthen the Parliament. Now, a self-evident principle of domestic policy will be extended to the European policy.

European policy is no classic Foreign policy, in which the Government has Yes greater freedom.” According to Eisels, it emerges that the impugned law is changed in special sessions of the Bundestag on August 26 and on September 8. The German ratification of the Lisbon Treaty can be deposited in due time before the Irish referendum.
