A directive is a collective legislative act of the EuropeanUnion which requires member states to achieve a particular result without dictating the means of achieving that result.
Directives normally leave member states with a certain amount of leeway as to the exact rules to be adopted.
In practice, with the exception of directives related to the common agricultural policy, directives are addressed to all member states, and specifies a date by which the states must have put the directive into effect.
Finally, the Union may spend, at maximum, only 1.27% of the combined GDP of all Member States, and that limit may not be raised without the unanimous agreement of all twenty-five states.
Far from being a "Superstate," the EuropeanUnion, under this Constitutional Treaty, will be a legally strong cooperative arrangement between States, who have voluntarily decided to limit the exercise of their own sovereignty in certain areas, so that they can achieve more together than any of them could ever achieve separately.
Recent events in the European Parliament, which brought about changes to the new European Commission as originally presented by President Barosso, demonstrate the beginning of such a European “demos.” This demos is in an early stage of formation, peacefully and slowly.
