— European Parliament (@Europarl_EN) February 12, 2019
With less than 100 days to go before the European elections (and still no clarity on Brexit!), let’s meet up and share the latest news on the Spitzenkandidaten, which MEPs hope to stay and who will leave as well as what the final EP is going to look like.
Are anti-EU parties on course to win one-third of seats, as reported by Politico this week, or should we be more optimistic?
And what about female representation? Can we dream of parity in the European Parliament, amongst the Commissioners and for the top EU jobs?
There’s clearly much to talk about…
But let’s also think about what can we, as generally social media savvy, pro EU folks, can do to get the message out that #thistimeImvoting. and that our contacts, friends and family should too.
Come and join us!
