Under the Ordinary Legislative Procedure, decisions in the EU are mostly taken by the Council of the EU and the European Parliament. In the area of foreign policy, resolutions have to be adopted with unanimity by the Council which relates to the requirement of all member states having to reach an agreement before a resolution can be adopted. In other policy areas, resolutions can be adopted under the principle of a qualified majority which means that 55% of EU countries vote in favor and the proposal is supported by countries that represent at least 65% of the EU population. If the proposal is not made by the Commission or the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the threshold is higher, meaning that 72% of EU country votes need to be and favor and have to represent 65% of the EU population. In other policy areas of the EU, there are no resolutions but directives and regulations such as in the area of consumer rights and common rules for imports.
