Description: The Council is the EU institution making EU laws together with the European Parliament. In most cases, the Council can only legislate on the basis of proposals submitted to it by the European Commission.
The Council is composed of Member States' government representatives, i.e. the ministers of each Member State with responsibility for a given area. The composition and frequency of Council meetings vary depending on the issues dealt with. Foreign ministers, for example, meet roughly once a month in the Foreign Affairs Council. Similarly, economics and finance ministers meet once a month in the Council which handles economic and financial affairs, called the Ecofin Council.
