How to inform Europeans better about the Parliament?

Text size Aa Aa

Q: “How can we be better informed? How can we make sure people get the information? Once again, we are ill-informed about what’s going on there (in the Parliament).”

A: “Hello my name is Richard Corbett, I am a Labour Member of the European parliament, I represent Yorkshire in the European Parliament. You have to show people that there is something at stake, that there is an “enjeu”, that there is a choice to be made, and that is the most important thing you can do. Yes, of course, I would like to see national media pay more intention to the elections. I think inevitably people normally pay more intention to national elections, they matter more for more subjects than Europe. But we do deal with some important subjects at the European level and in the European Parliament and then people can, and should, exercise their choice for what they see as the future of Europe and that’s what these elections are about.”
