Neelie Kroes wants to be held accountable. How do we do that?

December 18, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Neelie Kroes has defended her appointment of Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg to assist in the ‘no disconnect’ policy (see The EU’s new ‘No Disconnect’ strategy).

“Judge Karl-Theodor ultimately on the quality of the advice he provides,” she suggests. Well, it might be too late by then.

“Judge me, and hold me accountable, for the decisions I take on the basis of that advice,” she adds.

How exactly do we hold an unelected member of an unanswerable, autocratic, all-powerful, unelected organization ‘accountable’?
