The two omitted points included two topics, respectively; one of the topics referred to linguistic and ethnic non-discrimination. Not accepting this point, the Commission argued that there was no such concept as linguistic discrimination in the relevant provision of European Fundamental Rights. The other omitted point referred to minority national communities. This point tried to ensure that even if their political parties did not reach the electoral threshold in European elections, these communities should still have a seat in the European Parliament. The Commission claimed this to be an EP competence. However, the nine points below were accepted and registered by the Commission.
