57. Declaration by the Italian Republic on the composition of the European Parliament

Italy notes that, pursuant to Article 8 A (renumbered Article 10) and Article 9 A (renumbered Article 14) of the Treaty on European Union, the European Parliament is to be composed of representatives of the Union's citizens; this representation is to be degressively proportional.

Italy likewise notes that on the basis of Article 8 (renumbered Article 9) of the Treaty on European Union and Article 17 (renumbered Article 20) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, every national of a Member State is a citizen of the Union.

Italy therefore considers that, without prejudice to the decision on the 2009/2014 legislative period, any decision adopted by the European Council, at the initiative of the European Parliament and with its consent, establishing the composition of the European Parliament, must abide by the principles laid down out in the first subparagraph of Article 9 A(2) (renumbered Article 14).
