  • Statement by the Spokesperson on the Election to a Constituent Assembly in Venezuela

    A spokesperson's statement on the Election to a Constituent Assembly in Venezuela was issued today: "The events of the past 24 hours have reinforced the European Union's preoccupation for the fate of democracy in Venezuela. The European Union deeply regrets the violence and unrest during yesterday's election. It expresses condolences and its sympathy to the families and friends of all those killed. All sides must refrain from violence. The European Union condemns the excessive and disproportionate use of force by security forces. The Government of Venezuela has a responsibility to ensure respect for the rule of law and fundamental rights, such as freedom of expression and the right to peacefully demonstrate. Venezuela has democratically elected and legitimate institutions whose role is to work together and to find a negotiated solution to the current crisis. A Constituent Assembly, elected under doubtful and often violent circumstances cannot be part of the solution. It has increased division and will further de-legitimise Venezuela's democratically elected institutions. The President and the government have a special responsibility to restore the spirit of the constitution and to re-establish the trust lost by their attempt to set up divisive parallel institutions. The fate of democracy in Venezuela is a legitimate concern to all countries in the region and to Venezuela's partners across the world. In support of ongoing regional mediation efforts, the European Union will continue to seek urgent relief for the people of Venezuela and promote a political solution to the crisis."

  • Commission proposes to review all permits of large combustion plants in order to tackle pollution

    Today the Commission takes action to tackle pollution from large combustion plants, such as power stations and district heating plants, which are responsible for about one-third of all air pollutants from industry. Large combustion plants – with a total thermal input of more than 50 megawatt, irrespective of the type of fuel used – are the biggest sectoral emitters in the EU. Therefore more cost-effective and technically feasible reductions of emissions are required. To tackle pollution from large combustion plants is in line with this Commission’s Energy Union priorities to steer the on-going energy transition towards a low emission economy. Clean energy transition is a priority for the Commission and the ''Clean Energy for all Europeans" package presented last November aims at providing a stable regulatory framework to deliver on the transformation of the energy system, which will be crucial for the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

  • Commission seeks views on amicable resolution of disputes between investors and public authorities in the Single Market

    The Commission today launches a consultation on ways to facilitate investments made in another EU country. The objective of this consultation is to investigate whether EU rules could be useful in the context of preventing and resolving disputes amicably between investors and public authorities within the Single Market. Amicable resolution of investment disputes, such as through mediation, could help find consensual solutions to problems where they arise. This initiative follows the new priorities set out in the Capital Markets Union Mid-term Review of June 2017. Interested parties are also asked to identify areas where better clarity about EU investors' rights is needed in order to feed into the upcoming Commission guidance. The consultation questionnaires are available here and will be open until 3rd November 2017.
