The four issues are:
- the registration of the proposed initiative with the Commission and the admissibility criteria;
- the minimum number of signatories per Member State;
- the procedures and conditions for the collection of statements of support; and
- the online collection system.
As for now, the Council plans to come to an agreement for "a general approach" until the end of June.
The Council thus seems more or less supportive of the Commission proposal, which I think is quite citizen unfriendly as of yet.
