German Opposition Urges Merkel to Detail EU Reform

June 10, 2012

Germany’s political opposition said it wants Chancellor Angela Merkel to give details of her plans to reform the European Union’s institutions before an EU summit at the end of this month.

Merkel needs to give Germans more information on “seemingly imminent far-reaching changes to the EU’s institutional design,” said Carsten Schneider, the budget spokesman for the Social Democratic Party, the biggest opposition group in parliament. Merkel must address parliament “this week,” Schneider said today in an e-mailed statement.
