EURACTIV has learnt that the EPP, S&D and Renew Europe have agreed to establish three special committees each with a one-year mandate to better coordinate and analyse European Commission proposals on digital, cancer and fake news.
The digital committee will focus on topics ranging from health to agriculture. According to these political groups, cancer, which currently lies in the ENVI committee, needs to have a larger scope and more competences from other committees need to be mobilised.
The third committee will deal with fake news, and seek to reduce its impact on national elections across Europe. (Sarantis Michalopoulos | EURACTIV.com)
