EDS took part in the EPP Political Assembly
As usually, EDS as an official student organization of EPP, is continuously increasing its presence within the EPP family on the EPP Political Assembly which this time took place in Brussels on 6th-7th September.
The re-elected EDS President Virgilio Falco and the newly appointed Secretary General Sara Juriks presented our newly-elected Executive Bureau members and our plans for the upcoming months.
The assembly focused on the current EPP policies and built strategies for the upcoming European Elections. We also voted on the 2019 event calendar. It is anything to hide that hottest topic is the approaching appointment of the EPP Spitzenkandidat (EPP Candidate for President of the European Commission for the 2019 European Elections) during EPP Congress in Helsinki, Finland.
Directly afterwards, the EDS Bureau took part in the EPPTalks where enjoyed the remarkable speech of Joseph Daul, the President of European People’s Party, Jyrki Katainen, the Vice-President of the European Commission and Dara Murphy, Campaign Director of the European People’s Party.
