Enforcement and sanctions
With 27 Member States with each a different set-up of electoral authorities, data protection authorities and digital market regulators, enforcement will not be straightforward. The Commission counts on the GDPR and DSA enforcement structures and proposes guidelines for sanctions, but stays short of proposing minimum sanctions. Some of the ideas on the table are the introduction of minimum sanctions, a European-wide coordinating body, or even a European regulator. As electoral matters are politically sensitive, this discussion is expected to become heated.
