To quote 'The European Parliament is the only directly-elected body of the European Union. The 785 Members of the European Parliament are there to represent the citizens of Europe. They are elected once every five years by voters right across the 27 Member States of the European Union on behalf of its 492 million citizens.'
EU lesson no.4: at the EU level, neither the Parliament nor the Council may initiate EU legislation, only the European Commission can do so.
