Europe yes, but how? #4

Reality check European elections: 28 elections for 1 Parliament?

Visions for Europe: Voting together!

Over 50 percent of the around 427 million EU citizens entitled to vote voted directly on the members of the European Parliament at the end of May. But each country sets its own rules, procedures, dates, candidates and programmes for the European elections, and the weight of citizens' votes varies from country to country. The European elections thus become a kind of black box for the citizens.

Could a common suffrage strengthen the transparency and credibility of European politics and thus counter the increasing alienation and disappointment of many European citizens? Could joint elections be a legitimising force against anti-European voices and for equal rights for all EU-citizens?

Following the European elections, the European Democracy Lab and Ramesch Forum für Interkulturelle Begegnung e.V. would like to discuss this with Ulrike Guérot, Doris Pack, Isabelle Maras and other guests and take the opportunity to make a reality check. We cordially invite you to attend on 04.07.2019 at 18:30 in the Festsaal of the Rathaus St. Johann in Saarbrücken.

We look forward to your visit!

The event is open to the public and free of charge.
