10,462 views

Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, and Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Inter-Institutional Relations and Administration, held a joint press conference on 12 March 2013 in Strasbourg, concerning the 2014 European Parliament elections. The European Commission adopted a recommendation under which political parties should nominate a candidate for European Commission President in the next European elections and they should display their European political party affiliation. The proposals aim to better inform voters about the issues at stake in the next European Parliament elections, encourage a Europe-wide debate and ultimately improve voter turnout. The Commission is also calling on Member States to agree on a common voting date for the elections, traditionally spread out over a period of four days.
