Congratulations – you are now President of the European Union!
(Let's pretend for a second that a Presidential role exists and it’s you!)
As the President, you can decide what the most important issues are for Europe. What would you change to make things better? How would you do that?
In reality, decision-making in the EU is a complex process and does not lie in the hands of just one institution or person. Generally, the European Commission proposes laws which then need to be adopted by the European Parliament and the Council. Each of the EU’s institutions has its own President but they don’t have absolute power, and they can’t interfere in EU countries’ authority.
