THREATENED TO BE EXCLUDED FROM THE COMMISSION
The last day of EuroMad 2023 has finally arrived.
Whilst the delegates are spending these last moments finalising their choice of amendments, we journalists are trying to capture the final glimpses of this incredible event.
Today, the atmosphere seems different, more relaxed. We are all trying to take in the memories made during last night’s party. However, work still needs to be done, especially after yesterday’s breaking news, which shook the ground and turned all arguments upside down…
Today’s topic of conversation is taxes, which, of course, takes a large toll on most poor countries’ populations. After the last ever informal debate, the final debate started and the last points were made.
The most shocking event of the morning, and probably the whole event, was when Croatia wanted Austria to be expelled from the commission due to “authoritarian abuses”.It doesn’t end here, as Austria didn’t back down and proceed to threaten Croatia with the same thing. Will these two delegates go home with a bitter aftertaste in their mouths, or will they be able to sort out their differences, which we journalists think are more personal than they may seem. One thing is definitely clear, Austria has made more enemies than friends.
