Not being flippant but I read the first couple of paragraphs and this:So the EU are seeing the light and may move to a more democratic process of electing the Commission President, not before time allowing the actual voters to select the EU President as opposed to a carve up between parties and countries. This is after the 2019 farce and hopefully will bring further democracy to the EU.
Of course I doubt it will happen by the time of the next EU elections, and if it does and its not the result the EU wants will be kicked in to touch the election after.
The Spitzenkandidaten process is a joke, farce way of doing any thing, another reason to leave.
Parliament aims to enhance democracy and enable full participation in the European political space, based on lessons from the 2019 European elections.www.europarl.europa.eu
Potential reforms should be considered ahead of the 2024 elections, such as remote voting in specific circumstances, lowering the minimum voting age to 16, common admission, campaigning and funding rules, and the establishment of a European Electoral Authority. The upcoming Conference on the Future of Europe could examine these topics and others, say MEPs, such as transnational lists that would increase the visibility of European political parties and movements, the establishment of collective responsibility for the Commission and the transformation of the Council into a second EU legislative chamber, building on the momentum of youth participation.
Our youth will set us free.
