Abstract: In discussions about distribution of decisional power among the member states of the EU only the distribution of voting weights in the Council of Ministers is taken into account. In contrast to that, in this paper we analyse models of consultation, co-operation and co-decision procedures in decision-making of the European Union institutions: Commission, Council of Ministers and European Parliament. Using power indices methodology a distribution of influence among Commission, Council and the Parliament under different decision making
procedures is being evaluated, together with voting power of member states and European political parties.
