Loss of Sovereignty

EU constitution takes away Finnish President's right to participate in EU summits Virtual Finland

Finnish euro parliamentarian, Alexander Stubb (cons) said in European Parliament on Friday that the new EU constitutional treaty would deprive Finland's president and foreign minister of the right to take part in European Council meetings.

Mr Stubb said that when, in accordance with EU constitution, the European Council would become an organ of the European Union, its activities would no longer belong to the domain of the president.

"Then, it is no longer Finland's foreign policy but Finland's policy in the European Union, which unambiguously belongs with the prime minister's responsibilities", said Mr Stubb.

EU constitutional treaty will enter into force in November 2006, during Finland's presidency of the EU, subject to ratification by member states.
