Tajani: An experienced European elected president of the European Parliament

Centre-right politician Antonio Tajani, who served six years as a European commissioner before joining the Parliament in 2014, is well acquainted with the procedures in Brussels and Strasbourg.

Tajani should, therefore be trusted to present the Parliament in future negotiations with the Commission and the Council. At a news conference, jubilant Tajani declared he’ll be „president for everybody”. He wants to build bridges and represent the Parliament as a whole. His approach is to ensure that the voices of all Europeans are heard and taken into account in the decision-making of the European institutions. Tajani intends to strengthen European companies and to focus on social market economies.
