Demas joined an open letter addressed to Finance Minister Zbyněk Stanjur.
Together with 16 organisations and 6 platforms, DEMAS urged the Czech government to stand up for the rule of law in order to fulfil its own priority – strengthening democratic institutions – which was set for the Czech Presidency in June.
The NGOs are thus asking the Minister Zbyněk Stanjur, as the representative of the Czech Presidency on the 12 December Council agenda, to stand up for the use of the Regulation on conditionality of financial support as a tool to protect the rule of law and the EU budget and to negotiate measures that are as far as possible in line with the European Commission’s position.
