The “two pack” was an important formal step in strengthening EU economic governance, but the Commission’s ability to exercise its new powers will largely depend on the Member States. Their governments, though, are reluctant to commit to reforms that may cost them popularity at home. The road to a genuine Economic and Monetary Union will thus be a bumpy one unless the gulf between EU and national politics is narrowed. The current efforts to secure democratic legitimacy for the next Commission College by fostering competition between the candidates for Commission president in the next European elections may be difficult to put into practice and should thus be flanked by enhanced dialogue with national parliaments.
