This chapter focuses on political supervision in the multi-level system through the Council and the European Parliament, but Member States' structures of political supervision also play a role. Political supervision of administrative activity takes place horizontally between EU institutions and bodies within the concept of institutional balance. It also takes place vertically between Member States and the EU, which mutually control each others' activities in the realm of the implementation of Union law. Which forms of political supervision exist, and whether the available forms of political supervision are sufficient to hold EU administration actors politically accountable, are explored in the chapter.
