"Mr President, the drafting of the Charter has now reached a critical phase. We have drafted 60 clauses and provoked 1000 amendments. Frankly the Convention is staggering and may stall completely should the Feira Council fail to bring a fresh stimulus. We have so far tried to reach a consensus across the body. This is now proving an improbable task. We require a far more formal decision-making procedure of a parliamentary type. This means voting, and voting by a qualified majority, as would be normal for the procedures within any modern European State. Some representatives of the European Council cannot stand the prospect of being forced to vote and they disapprove of the nature of the Convention itself. This prejudice must be suppressed by the Feira Council if the project is to succeed."@en1
