Buzek complains to van Rompuy on "Europe 2020" timeline

In a letter written 11 days ago, European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek has complained that the Commission has adopted the draft Council recommendations for the Europe 2020 guidelines on economic and employment policies too late.

According to the letter, the Parliament won't be able to give its consent to the recommendations in due time and Buzek thus asks European Council President van Rompuy that the European Council should not pass them during the June summit.

Update: Here is the European Parliament press release on this subject; date: 23 April (via @mvandenbroeke).
