Good News For The New Europe


The European Union looks increasingly set to adopt a constitution as early as June -- much sooner than expected. Efforts to agree on the document, designed to vastly speed up decision-making in the future enlarged EU, broke down in December in the face of opposition from Spain and Poland. They objected to the way national votes would be weighted in EU councils.

But the surprise victory of pro-European Jos? Luis Rodr?guez Zapatero and his Socialist Party in Spanish elections means Spain will now back the constitution. Poland is also indicating it will be more flexible. Other issues still divide EU members, from finding a replacement for European Commission President Romano Prodi to agreeing on a new budgetary framework. EDITED BY Edited by Rose Brady
