The democratic decision-making process is actually dreaded by many politicians as too much work. The EU structure was clearly established to make sure that those who make the rules are not subject to election. France’s new president, Emmanuel Macron, would like to be able to make decisions in the social field without the hassle of discussion as they do in the EU Commission. So the Parliament, which was to be elected in June, was to give Macron the authority to conclude reforms with his decrees. This requires a majority. Whether Macron’s new party, “La République en Marche”, reaches this goal, is questionable whether the other parties want to give their power to the president. It appears eliminating the right to vote is becoming much more in fashion these days.
