Given that the new European Parliament will be more Eurosceptical, radical and fragmented than its predecessors, Sonia Piedrafita and Karel Lannoo warn that it will face even tougher constraints in building the necessary majorities to pass legislation and adopt decisions. They argue in this new Commentary that this grave situation calls for a serious debate on the governability of the EP.

Sonia Piedrafita is Research Fellow in the Politics and Institutions research unit at CEPS. Karel Lannoo is Chief Executive Officer and Senior Research Fellow at CEPS.
