Ms Monika Hohlmeier

Chair of the Committee on Budgetary Control

European Parliament

 

 

Strasbourg, 14/01/2021

Closed complaints 1141/2020/MIG and 1143/2020/MIG

Statements by the European Commission’s President and its Vice-President for Democracy and Demography in the run-up to the Croatian elections

Dear Ms Hohlmeier,

Please find enclosed, for your information, a copy of the European Commission’s follow-up letter in the above cases. I informed you about the concerns raised in these cases in July 2020, given that the European Parliament had been asked to give its opinion when the current version of the Commission’s Code of Conduct for its Members was drafted

The Commission notes that, as part of its response to the concerns raised, it will draw up guidelines clarifying the practical modalities for the participation of its Members in national election campaigns.

I remain at your disposal should the Committee require further information or wish to discuss the matter.

Yours sincerely, 

Emily O'Reilly
European Ombudsman
