‘Giscard d’Estaing contests the principle of equality of states within the Commission’ from Le Monde (21 June 2003)

The principle of equal rotation between Commissioners as laid down in the draft Constitution drawn up by the European Convention does not reflect the opinion of Valéry Giscard d’Estaing and Jean-Luc Dehaene (the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Convention), who prefer a smaller ‘college’ of Commissioners. On 21 June 2003, the French daily newspaper Le Monde sets out their arguments.
