Involving a wider European audience in EU politics should be the goal of all those involved in building a pan-European democracy.
In a public statement, the Socialists & Democrats in the European Parliament now announce that they are taking questions from the public via email that could be asked during the hearings of the designated Commissioners next week.
They also announce that they want to keep the public informed via Twitter and other channels during the days of the hearings.
This sounds like a great move; maybe other political groups in the EP could follow their example?
