The Slovenian Presidency welcomes ratification of the Lisbon Treaty by the Greek parliament. In common with Estonia and Finland, Greece approved the Treaty yesterday. The Treaty has therefore now been ratified by the parliaments of Hungary, Slovenia, Malta, Romania, France, Bulgaria, Poland, Slovakia, Portugal, Denmark, Austria, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany, Luxembourg, Finland, Estonia and Greece.
Just six months after its signature, the Treaty has already been ratified by two thirds of the Member States (prior to today’s referendum in Ireland). This represents a major success.
More about the Lisbon Treaty, details of ratification procedures in individual Member States, and the benefits the Treaty brings to EU citizens is available on the web site: Europa – Treaty of Lisbon
