Hearing of José Manuel Barroso for the EP Greens / European Free Alliance Group: extracts from the doorstep by José Manuel Barroso following his hearing

158 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, expressed himself after his exchange of views with the Green group, which campaigned at the last European election on a platform of "Stop Barroso". It was also the only political hearing made public. This week, José Manuel Barroso met with MEPs 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 was to retain the post. The European People's Party was backing him, but he encountered strong opposition from the Greens and the leftist GUE/NGL, whilst the Socialists and Liberals remained undecided on whether to back him. José Manuel Barroso first met with the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) on Monday. He faced a bumpy ride as the group was generally sceptical, about European integration. He then met the European People's Party (EPP), the largest group in the Parliament, and the one that had supported his re-appointment. That same evening, he faced the Europe and United Left/Nordic Green Left. He met later on the eurosceptic Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) group.
