• Under the founding Treaties the Parliament was known originally as the assembly. It was not elected but its members were appointed from the members of the national parliaments of the member states. It had not direct legislative power but played a consultative and supervisory role.
• Concerning the denomination of this community institution, we should mention that in 1962, the members of the assembly had decided to use the denomination of "European Parliament". This new denomination was provided expressly by the Single European Act and since 1987, the Assembly had been officially known as the European Parliament.
