Today I entered my office and found this poster in front of me. An invitation to all European citizens to speak up, to express their views at the Parliamentary election that will be held on May 22-25.
The outcome will be of utmost importance: the new European Parliament will represent all of us for the next five years. It won’t be easy, as in several countries the economic crisis is still hitting hard and recovery signs are weak. Citizens’ trust in European institutions in low, and young people find it hard to imagine their future.
Yet, we have now the possibility of expressing ourselves. Our vote counts, let’s believe in it.
