Why this elections are important?
The European Parliment under the Lisbon Treaty and the growing role f Parliment in the Eurozone will have a sagnificant impact on the European Union for the next five years. Also the European Parliment will have ligislative powers to change the way the single market is regulated, amend the policies on the free movement of persons, the annual budget. For the first time the newly elected European Parliament will formally “elect” the next Commission President. In short, the political majority that emerges from the May 2014 elections will not only determine the policies pursued by the European Parliament in the governance of the single market and the Eurozone but also determine who will hold the most powerful executive office in the EU machinery: the Commission President. The outcome of these elections will hence shape EU politics for the next five years, and perhaps beyond.
