My vision is political union, because Europe has to follow its own path. We need to get closer step by step, in all policy areas. In the course a long process, we will transfer more powers to the Commission, which will then work as a European government for European competencies. This implies a strong parliament. The Council, which brings together heads of government, will form the second chamber. Finally, we have the European Court of Justice as the supreme court. This could be the future shape of the European political union in a while and, as I said, after many steps.
