The European Commission, established 1951, is in charge of representing the interests of the European Union as a whole. It proposes new legislation to the European Parliament as well as to the Council of the European Union. It also ensures EU law is correctly applied by member states. Each member state has a representative at the European Commission, although these representatives are obliged to keep the interests of the European Union as a whole in the forefront instead of those of their home country.
