‘New reflection needed for composition of the Commission' from the Europe Daily Bulletin (20 June 2003)

In his editorial of 20 June 2003 regarding the composition of the Commission, Ferdinando Riccardi, Chief Editor of the Europe Daily Bulletin, criticises the arrangements set out in the Treaty of Nice that provide for ‘a Commissioner for every Member State', and also the arrangements set out in the draft European Convention providing for a reduction in the number of Commissioners with full voting rights. In his view, it is necessary to maintain the principle of differentiation between large and small countries in place since the very beginning of Community history.
