Slowly, the European Elections 2009 are starting to receive some attention in the member states.
The news are not yet focused on the event, but all over the European Union we can see parties and party leaders beginning to orient towards 2009:
In Poland, the left prepares to fight for its political life in EP election and in the Czeque Republic the Social democrats have nominated former minister Karel Březina as EP elections manager
In Malta, the EP elections will be the test for the secretary general of the Labour party and in Greece, Party leaders are seeking fresh tactics with a view of next year's European Parliament elections.
French-German Green party member Daniel Cohn-Bendit wants to unite the ecologists for the European Elections and in Italy the Berlusconi Cabinet will pass a bill on the electoral law for the EP elections 2009 at the end of the month.
Under the category "Tracking: EP elections 2009" I am following up national and European activities on the path to the European Parliament elections 2009. So far: (6), (5), (4), (3), (2), (1).
