Swedish Council Presidency Tweets

Sweden has launched its Council presidency website:


And the country renowned for the openness of its government has become the first Council Presidency to use Twitter. You can follow the press secretaries of both the prime minister and minister for financial markets as well as the Deputy Antici and the environment minister’s advisor.

Trust the Scandinavians to drag Council kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

    On the contrary, expect the more traditional member states to hunker down to wait for the brief spell of sunshine to pass. In six months things will be back to the normal drizzle.

    I really appreciate this post. More transparency and accountability are what can foster the democratic credentials of EU. What it lacks so far.
    Hope Sweden will push for more democratic legitimacy and also make european citizens benifit from the swedish experience on sustainable developpement!

    Lycka till Cecilia 🙂
