The EU executive presented on Tuesday (24 October) 26 initiatives to complete ten political priorities set by Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker at the start of his mandate in 2014.

According to the Commission, more than 80% of the initiatives contained in these ten priorities have already been put forward.

“We set a limited number of new proposals which will be delivered by May 2018, so the legislative work here [the European Parliament] and in the Council can be finished before the elections,” the Commission’s First Vice-President Frans Timmermans told the Parliament’s plenary session.

Given that 2018 is his final opportunity to leave his mark on the European project, Juncker outlined a bold vision for the EU during his State of the Union address last September.
