MEPs celebrated the reforms that enhanced democracy and expanded people’s rights in the EU with Presidents Sassoli, Michel and von der Leyen.
(...) The Lisbon Treaty introduced a higher level of parliamentary scrutiny and democratic accountability and increased Parliament’s legislative and budgetary powers. The Treaty also recognised that the EP is “composed of representatives of the European Union’s citizens” and gave it the power to elect the President of the Commission.
Having recognised democratic equality, representative democracy and participatory democracy as fundamental principles of the EU, the Treaty made the Charter of Fundamental Rights a legally binding document. The Charter brings together all personal, civic, political, economic and social rights enjoyed by people in the European Union
