6: The United Kingdom will accept 100% of what the European Parliament and the ECJ define without any possibility of abstention or veto, which will destroy the need for the United Kingdom to have the Lords or even the House of Commons as we know it today. Before the opening of the IGC, the Polish government expressed a desire to renegotiate the June agreement, particularly on the voting system, but gave in under political pressure from most other Member States because it did not want to be seen as the only troublemaker in the negotiations.  The need for a revision of the EU`s constitutional framework, particularly in view of the accession of ten new Member States in 2004, was underlined in a declaration annexed to the Treaty of Nice in 2001. The Nice agreements had paved the way for a further enlargement of the Union through a reform of voting procedures. In the December 2001 Laeken Declaration, the EU pledged to improve democracy, transparency and efficiency and defined the process that could constitute a constitution to achieve these goals. Created under the presidency of former French President Valéry Giscard d`Estaing, the European Convention was tasked with providing as comprehensive advice as possible throughout Europe in order to draft a first draft constitution. The final text of the constitutional proposal was adopted at the summit on 18-19 June 2004, under the Irish Presidency. The treaty introduces an exit clause for members who wish to withdraw from the Eu. The procedure is thus formalised by finding that a Member State must inform the European Council before it can end its accession and a withdrawal agreement would then be negotiated between the Union and that State, the treaties no longer apply to that State from the date of the agreement or, if not, within two years of notification. There have been several cases where a region is no longer part of the Community, such as.
B Greenland in 1985, when no Member State had left the Community at the time of ratification of the Lisbon Treaty. Before the Lisbon Treaty came into force, it was not clear whether a Member State had a legal right to leave the EU. On 30 March 2017, the United Kingdom announced its intention to leave the European Union.  After negotiating a Brexit withdrawal agreement, the UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. The Lisbon Treaty, which came into force at the end of 2009, gave the European Parliament new legislative powers and put it on an equal footing with the Council of Ministers when it came to deciding what the EU is doing and how the money is being spent. It has also changed the way Parliament cooperates with other institutions and has given MEPs greater influence over the person who leads the EU. All these reforms have ensured that your vote in the European elections will give you even more say in the direction of Europe. Given external powers, the European Union seems to have the right to accede to the Lisbon Agreement in the first place. Indeed, the Lisbon Treaty amending Article 133 of the Treaty establishing the European Community, which became Article 207 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, came into force on 1 December 2009.
