Joint procedure between the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly: PACE amends its Rules of Procedure

By adopting a resolution today, on the basis of the report by Sir Edward Leigh (United Kingdom, EC/AD), PACE has decided to amend its Rules of Procedure to enable the implementation of a complementary joint procedure between the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly in response to a serious violation by a member State of its statutory obligations, as decided by PACE in January 2020 in its Resolution 2319 (2020).

These changes, underlines the resolution adopted today, concern the conditions for initiating and dealing with such a procedure, as well as the conditions for voting on an Assembly decision initiating this procedure.
