Campaign: "Who is your candidate?"
This campaign fought for a transparently and democratically elected President of the European Commission.
The President of the European Commission should no longer be chosen behind closed doors in the European Council. Instead the President of the European Commission should be chosen by the European Parliament, and by implication us the voters, as hinted in articles 9A and 9D of the Lisbon Treaty.
Therefore, the political parties in the European Parliament were asked, in good time before the June 2009 parliament elections, answer the question: Who's Your Candidate?
