Transnational lists: A first step towards a pan-European democracy
Commenting on this morning’s vote on the transnational lists, held in the European Parliament’s Committee on Constitutional Affairs, Marielle de SARNEZ, Secretary General of the European Democrats, said:
"This evolution is now possible with the United Kingdom leaving the EU and therefore the redistribution of seats. In this context, I support the creation of transnational lists drawn up with European personalities aiming at EU key positions.
This is the first step towards a pan-European democracy and I express the hope that this vote will be confirmed during the next Plenary session in Strasbourg and the European Council next month."
A Genuine European Parliament is one of the EDP key proposals. We therefore propose the election of 15% of MEPs in a single European constituency, with a candidate for the presidency of the European Union at the top of the list.
