DEMOCRATIC DEFICIT


vIt is often said that the EU's decision-making system is too remote from ordinary people, who cannot understand its complexities and its difficult legal texts. The EU is trying to overcome this “democratic deficit” through simpler legislation and better public information, and by giving civil society a greater say in European policymaking. Citizens are already represented in EU decision-making via the European Parliament.
