Hearing of José Manuel Barroso for the EP Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Group: doorstep by José Manuel Barroso following his hearing

8 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, expressed himself after his exchange of views with the EP Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Group (ALDE), the third largest group in the European Parliament. He said that he found a great degree of convergence between the programme he is proposing and the priorities of this group. He announced his intention to have a commissioner for fundamental rights, anti-discrimination and justice. And he also insisted on his commitments to preserve the internal market. This meeting took part in the framework of a series of encounters of President Barroso with deputies, as he tried to persuade Parliament's main political groups, to back him for a second term. He needed the backing of a simple majority of MEPs if he was to retain the post. This encounter could be crucial for his re-election, as the ALDE group remained undecided on whether to back President Barroso.
