The German minister called for the abolition of the principle of unanimity in decision-making at the EU level. (Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz On May 20, he advocated the same thing.) Now such decisions are made only on the condition that all the leaders of the member countries vote “for”: even one vote “against” leads to no decisions being made.

As Habek put it, Europe “must become viable.”
