Pistas para o novo "tratado"

Germany is believed to be ready to make concessions to more sceptical countries, including the UK, Poland and the Czech Republic, by proposing a shorter treaty that would no longer be referred to as a constitution.

Trappings of EU statehood, such as an anthem and flag, are likely to be dropped while the charter of fundamental rights – a central part of the document rejected by French and Dutch voters in 2005 – may receive only a cross-reference in the new treaty.

Institutional elements – including a new EU president and simplified voting rights – would be retained, despite strong opposition from Poland to the proposed voting system.

No Financial Times.
