4directions every year, upon lots of already existing legislation.

5●  In this moment there are no stimulus for the parliamentarians to review the existing legislation.

9●  Old legislation are often outdated and no longer relevant for the member states

10●  That tons of old and irrelevant legislation makes the European Parliament more complex and

11harder to explain for citizens.

12●  Relevant and up to date politics and legislation gives the politicians better opportunities to

13change the existing politics, which secures a national anchoring in the European system.

14●  To ensure growing support for the EU, it's legislation has to be updated and reflex the time we

15live in.

16●  True democracy is transparent for its citizens.
