"The Commission is right to back Parliament's call for the political parties to nominate their candidates for the next presidency of the Commission. The arrival of party political champions on the scene will dramatise the European Parliamentary election campaign across Europe, and offer the voters a real choice between competing policies and personalities.
 
"It would also be a useful innovation if the logos and names of the European political parties could appear on the ballot papers."
