"A political Commission is one that listens to the European Parliament, listens to all Member States, and listens to the people.
And it is us listening that motivated my Commission to withdraw 100 proposals in our first two years of office, to present 80% fewer initiatives than over the past 5 years and to launch a thorough review of all existing legislation. Because only by focusing on where Europe can provide real added value and deliver results, will we be able to make Europe a better, more trusted place."
Jean-Claude Juncker, State of the Union Address, European Parliament, 14 September 2016
