00:02:21 SOUNDBITE (English): Martin SCHULZ, EP President: "The European election is after this tremendous crisis in which the European Union is and we should not be illusionary, the crisis is not only an economic or financial crisis, it is an identity crisis 6 months ahead to the elections. We should take into account that the European Union, to which ever political attendance one may be long to needs entire reforms, I think this is the common view on the European Union, that we must reform." 00:00:43

00:03:07 SOUNDBITE (English): Martin SCHULZ, EP President: "The character of such an election that a vote matters directly, that a vote for the Parliament directly matters for the appointment of an executive body that is the normal case in an election and that was missing until today in the European elections and I think this is a chance, a progress that citizens influence directly with their vote, more then it was the case until today the appointment of an executive body." 00:00:29

00:03:40 SOUNDBITE (English): Martin SCHULZ, EP President: "One of our biggest problem is that the promise that Europe is peace is still kept, but the promise that Europe is growth, employment, decent salaries, a decent life for everybody and especially a chance for the younger generation, those promises are not kept. And therefore the most important item for me for the time being is the fight against unemployment and especially of young people." 00:00:33

00:04:17 SOUNDBITE (English): Martin SCHULZ, EP President: "I want to restart in the next period of Parliament and Commission by referring to a strong element of the Lisbon Treaty which is often underestimated; the Lisbon Treaty has an article saying the European Union takes action only where locally, regionally and nationally things cannot be done better. That means in the other way around, the thinking in Brussels should be, where should withdraw from because it must be done better on a local, regional or national level." 00:00:49
