EU Commissioner Hübner, who will be running for the EP elections for an EPP member party from Poland (while considering herself as a liberal democrat), has announced to fight the eurosceptic "Libertas" party.
That is what I want to hear: Clear European positions and a real political debate about the European Union! I am looking forward to Ms Hübern's campaign.
In fact, I met her shortly in 2007, and although we were in quite a rush (I was dealing with the protocol during a conference and bringing her to the conference room), she was asking questions that seemed really interested in what was going on behind the scenes of our work. Calm, open and very friendly - she left a good impression on me.
I hope that during her campaign she we will use these attributes to convince voters that its worth voting for the EP elections and that voices like Libertas express legitimate positions but offer the wrong answers to some right and some wrong questions!
Under the category "European parliament elections 2009" I am following up national and European activities on the path to the European Parliament elections 2009.
