The European Commission decided yesterday on new measures to be taken to defend the rule of law in the European Union. The Commission concluded that there is a clear risk of a serious breach of the rule of law in Poland. The Commission is therefore proposing to the Council to adopt a decision under Article 7 of the Treaty on European Union. This could even lead to Poland losing its voting rights in the Council of the European Union.
Online voting should not be introduced in general elections as its risks are greater than its benefits. This is the opinion of the working group that the Ministry of Justice appointed to examine the possibilities to introduce online voting in Finland.
