European elections 2009 (41): European Parliament website features the EP elections

The European Parliament has put up a sub-page of its website covering the 2009 European Parliament elections.

It rather looks like an acquittal than like a true enthusiastic offer to the European citizens, and I suppose that if it remains like it is today, it won't raise much interest.


Do you know why we should vote for the European Parliament according to this page? Because:
"[b]y voting in EP elections, [we] choose who influences [our] future and the daily life of close to 500 million fellow Europeans."
If this was true, there would be more professionalism behind the page where you find this over-optimistic description on the task of the European Parliament. If this was true, you would not need to write it down. If this was true, there would be a natural interest in the elections.

But it is not true, and the low ambitions of a sub-site are a very good indicator thereto.

Under the category "European parliament elections 2009" I am following up national and European activities on the path to the European Parliament elections 2009.

For an overview over all articles in this category have a look at the overview article.
