Hi everyone,
We’ve been working on a questionnaire to send to candidates for Commission President for party groupings (but which could be used with MEP candidates and national parties as well). A draft of the questions is attached. Do let me know if you have any suggestions / comments. We are happy to organise the sending of the questions and reporting back of answers, but it would be great to have other organisations signed-up to this as well – let me know if you would be interested.
Groups working on tax may also be asking some questions, so another possibility is we combine this into one questionnaire to cover both debt and tax.
The candiates for Commission President of each of the party groupings is:
European People’s Party: Being decided next week
Party of European Socialists: Martin Schulz
Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Party: Guy Verhofstadt
European Green Party: Ska Keller and José Bové
Party of the European Left: Alexis Tsipras
Apparently there is going to be a TV debate between them on 14 May.
Cheers,
Tim
