THE LEGAL STATUS OF EUROPEAN TRANSNATIONAL FEDERATIONS OF POLITICAL PARTIES – CASE STUDY OF THE EUROPEAN PEOPLE’S PARTY
Languages of publication
The legal status of federations of political parties on the European Union level is expressed both in the primary and secondary EU law. Certain criticism and further evolution notwithstanding, the definitions and financing criteria provided therein seem to clarify the situation of these federations in a sufficient, comprehensive manner. In turn, their by-laws and internal organisational provisions show that European transnational federations of political parties play an important role in the European Union institutions and the political process taking place therein. An analysis of these provisions seems to prove also their additional value as pioneering legal solutions in the political organisation on the Union level – again, notwithstanding certain doubts on their formulation. The European People’s Party, as the biggest existing federation, is a good example of their legal and political features.
