The decision-making process in the EU is “not fit for purpose”, according to Italian MEP Marco Zanni.
The furious European politician hit out at the union in an EU Parliament speech over the proposed recovery package.
Mr Zanni claimed that the bureaucracy had laid bare the “inefficiencies” of the economic bloc.
He said: “We were told this week there would be a European Council of which we already knew the conclusion.
“No agreement on the so-called recovery plan. and probably a clash between member states.
“Well, this demonstrates the inefficiencies of the European institutions in providing a response to the crisis.
“The Commission made a proposal which was in itself highly inefficient.
“Three-quarters of the money only coming in 2023
“Three years after the crisis broke.
“When businesses and workers had already lost their jobs.
This is why the decision-making process in the EU is not fit for purpose.”
