EU Top Jobs: Tusk and Mogherini must be faces of a stronger and more united European Union

Brussels 2 September: The European Movement International (EMI) welcomes the appointment of Donald Tusk as President of the European Council and Federica Mogherini as High Representative for Foreign Affairs. The ambition must be to work for a more united and stronger European Union, both internally and externally.

 

Mr Tusk, together with Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, will have the delicate task of mediating between the interests of the European Union member states in order to find common positions and solutions that benefit all European citizens. In light of numerous crises in the European Union’s direct neighbourhood, Ms Mogherini must strengthen the Union’s external policy capabilities and organise the voice of Europe to defend its values and interests.

 

Jo Leinen MEP, President of the European Movement International stated that: ‘With the discussions on the distribution of the European Union’s top-jobs coming to an end, EU leaders should now swiftly focus on solutions for the new and old crises in and around Europe. A strong European voice is not only needed to overcome the economic crisis, but also to avoid further bloodshed in our direct neighbourhood. Ms Mogherini’s and Mr Tusk’s prime responsibility is to provide for the unity of the EU’.

Jean-Claude Junker (PPE) doit donc être considéré comme le président légitime selon le ME-I, au risque de déclencher une crise institutionnelle et démocratique pouvant profiter aux eurosceptiques.
