EU SUPERSTATE: Brussels bureaucrat calls for European federal government in wake of Brexit

Martin Schulz has said it was time for a “genuine European government” to replace the unelected European Commission.

The parliament’s president said an elected government who would have to answer to the European parliament would “make for more transparent political accountability at the EU level”.

That way, dissatisfied EU citizens could “replace one European government with another through elections”, he wrote in Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper.
