The Commission decided on Friday to grant an additional three-month extension for the registered European Citizens' Initiatives due to the challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The extension concerns initiatives, which are currently collecting statements of support. A first six-month extension was already granted in last July  and the second three-month extension in December.

European Citizens' Initiatives are one of the unique tools through which European citizens can directly influence the future of the EU and call for new laws.
