On Saturday the 7th of June 2008 the Open Doors Day of the European Parliament took place in Brussels.
The UEF secretariat together with JEF Europe, UEF Belgium and the UEF Groupe Europe took this occasion to inform about our current activities and to advertise the UEF Who is your Candidate campaign.
Therefore the UEF was present with several stands inside the European Parliament where the attendees of the Open Doors Day had the chance for informal discussions on the future of Europe and obtained the actual publications of the UEF network.
The main action for the UEF network during the Open Doors Day was to advertise and promote the Who is your Candidate campaign. Here several additional signatures were collected.
At the Open Doors Day Mr. Louis MICHEL, Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid, signed the campaign.
The UEF Who is your Candidate campaign pleads for a more democratic and transparent Europe. The aim is to convince the political parties to nominate their candidates for President of the European Commission in good time before the European elections in June 2009.
