Die ECR-groep het duidelik uitgekom teen die eie-inisiatiefverslag oor die verdere verdieping van die EU in die aanloop tot die toetreding van nuwe lidlande soos Oekraïne en Moldawië, wat vandag aanvaar is. Die mantra van die huidige federalistiese meerderheid, wat al hoe meer magte van die lidlande na Brussel wil oordra, is op valse aannames gegrond. Tydens die debat het ECR-skadurapporteur Jacek Saryusz-Wolski gesê: “To say that enlargement requires centralisation of the EU through treaty change is a blatant lie. Enlargement is just a false pretext for the planned construction of a European superstate to replace today’s European Union”.

The ECR Group recalls that previous enlargements have not had a negative impact on the EU’s decision-making capacity. On the contrary, the speed of decision-making has increased, even when unanimity has been maintained.

“Extensive academic research on previous enlargements and their impact on the functioning of the EU has shown that enlargement has not had a negative impact on the EU’s decision-making capacity. On the contrary, the speed of decision-making has actually increased, even without unanimity,” het Saryusz-Wolski gesê.

“Even though the previous enlargements in 2004 and 2007 absorbed larger economies and populations than the forthcoming one, the EU institutions continued to function well and even more effectively,” het hy bygevoeg.

Vir die ECR-groep sou die afskaffing van eenstemmigheid 'n verval wees wat die hele institusionele struktuur van die EU sou destabiliseer. Volgens die konserwatiewes waarborg net eenstemmigheid dat belangrike besluite op gelyke voet onderhandel word en dat alle state aan boord is.

Nevertheless, the ECR Group believes that the European Parliament has rightly emphasised the role of enlargement as an important foreign policy instrument, the importance of granting candidate status to Ukraine, Moldova and – under certain conditions – Georgia, and the role of the Western Balkans. However, the EU should decentralise rather than centralise further with a view to enlargement.
