The AK firmly rejects the proposal for a regulation for a governance framework for the budgetary instrument for convergence and competitiveness:


Already the basis of the governance framework, the European Semester, is itself to be criticised. The country-specific recommendations represent a series of demands which, in many cases, appear to be arbitrary, objectively unjustified, socially unbalanced and at any rate run counter to the social objectives enshrined in the EU Treaties or a wealth-oriented policy.


The decision-making procedure to determine measures identified as worth supporting is highly questionable from a democratic perspective and therefore is clearly rejected by the AK.
