EU Constitutional Treaty Adopted and Awaits Ratification

EU Constitutional Treaty Adopted and Awaits Ratification

As reported at the EU Presidency 2004 Website, “EU leaders have reached agreement on a new Constitutional Treaty for Europe at the European Council in Brussels.”

The Treaty now has to be explained to the citizens of the European Union and ratified by the Member States before the Constitution of the European Union can come into force.

Although some of the European Member States wanted the concept of “under God” to be brought into the text of the Constitution, the adopted version does not include this concept. Especially France insisted on a separation of Church and State.
