The European Parliament on Wednesday approved a resolution to launch procedures for reviewing EU treaties in response to the demands of European citizens presented in the framework of the Conference on the Future of Europe.

The meeting of European delegates in Strasbourg, by a large majority, considered it necessary to “revise the treaties in order to implement the conference’s proposals for the future of Europe.”

The European Parliament is currently proposing specific plans to revise the founding texts of the European Union. It is then submitted to the Council of Europe, which, if approved, will convene a conference in this regard. If national law provides, amendments must be approved by referendum in each member state.

The conference on the future of Europe was a popular consultation that began a year ago and ended on Saturday with the approval of 325 proposals for actions that would emerge from discussions on various topics. The 27 agreements should be amended to work with some proposals, such as ending the adoption of the consensus, barring the continuation of European action, granting parliament the right to legislative initiative and expanding the powers of the European Union.

A closing ceremony will be held in Strasbourg on May 9, during which the results will be officially handed over to French President Emmanuel Macron and European Commission President Ursula van der Leyen.
