High degree conflict of interest of the EU member states and efforts of the EU institutions to increase their power and influence in decision-making process, makes the process of allocation of power in the EU extremely complex process which is under permanent modifications and changes. Relations between the normative regime and political system in EU decision making does not always lead to zero result in the strengthening of the Community which necessarily leads to a proportional weakening position of the member states and "vice-versa". Balancing the system of political decision making and normative regulation makes paradigm of allocation of power in the EU ambiguous and challenging, that still remained beyond the scope of the scholar criticism. To understand the functioning of institutionalized balance between the political and normative system in the EU, which means all the controversies of the process of allocation of power in the EU, is important for understanding of the interactive relationship between the EU institutions, and communications between EU institutions and national institutions of the EU member states, as well. These processes creates the complex relationship between the powerful bureaucracy of the EU, which is developing in the EU institutions, and political elites of EU member states, that can significantly change the nature of the allocation of power within EU and nature of sovereignty of EU member states.
