Summary

Presidents of European Parliament and European Commission, and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy are marginal politicians without having any power in decision-making.

Disproof

Formal decisions in the EU are taken by the Member States unanimously, or by qualified majority, and co-decided by the European Parliament. The Comission and the HRVP have the power to initiate EU legislation.
