European Liberal Party’s candidate for EC President, Guy Verhofstadt, on euronews

For the first time, the European political parties are picking an MEP to be the public face of this year’s European Elections vote.

The Socialists have already picked Germany’s Martin Schulz, whilst the Greens have joint candidates in José Bové and Ska Keller.

The far-left’s campaign will be led by Greece’s Alexis Tsipras.

Only the centre-right EPP are still to unveil their top name.

The Liberals named former Belgian prime minister Guy Verhofstadt, who will be supported by the EU’s economics commissioner Olli Rehn.

We spoke with Jean Quatremer, EU correspondent for the French daily Liberation, to weigh up Verhofstadt’s chances of success.

Euronews Isabel da Silva also interviewed Guy Verhofstadt.
