This Tribune is based on Antonio Vitorino's speech during a public hearing at the Committee on constitutional affairs of the European Parliament on 20 January 2014.
The hearing dealt with the question: 'Relations between the European Parliament and the European Commission: Parliamentarism or Presidentialism?'.
His speech focused on four elements:
1. Differentiation as the key feature of the EU institutional development.
2. The appointment of the Commission's president: who is the king maker?
3. The political efficiency of the Commission: the need for innovation.
4. The exercise of legislative powers and the role of inter-institutional agreements.
