It is not widely known, that the general rights for EU member state citizens are not equal, when we are addressing the issue of European Parliament Elections. Some member states has adopted regulations regarding the voting procedure of EP candidates, which are only let people from the national parliament’s parties to be nominated for EP candidates.
This is unequal, uneuropean to preserve this state, where myself, as an European Citizen can not be nominated to be an EP candidate, because I am not the member of a parliament party.
This is an unequal and unbalanced representative structure. Civil socety has to review it, and foster change.
The question of voting needs to be standardized and regulated more from an EU perspective, giving not recommendations, but some strict regulations on equal possibilites on who could be a candidate for EP elections.
WE ARE NOT HAVING EQUAL EUROPEAN UNION CITIZEN RIGHTS AT THE EP ELECTIONS IN THE MEMBER STATES.
We have some rights in common regarding voting, but there is no common agreement on nominations to be a candidate.
How do you feel about it?
And finally, the idea here is to have all the elections on one weekend Europe-wide! This would not only make the elections more in the light, but also it would be much CHEAPER, and more people would participate.
That is what I would like to see- European Voting Weekend.
