Now that the Parliament’s negotiating mandate is ready, all eyes are on the Member States represented in the Council and the European Council. The discussions held so far show that the differences of opinion on many aspects remain significant. They concern horizontal issues, such as the overall MFF size, its flexibility and the introduction of a budgetary instrument for the euro area, as well as specific aspects of different spending programmes, including their financial envelopes (notably for cohesion and agriculture), allocation criteria and implementation modalities. The postponement of the decision on the next MFF to autumn 2019 gives the Member States more time to clarify these thorny issues, and politicians an opportunity during the electoral period to involve citizens in the debate on EU spending priorities.
