Helga Stevens to participate in first-ever live debate between European Parliament presidential candidates

The ECR The N-VA is a member of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR), a conservative, eurorealistic parliamentary group in the European Parliament. The N-VA shares their realistic view of the European project and also advocates for the correct and intensive application of the subsidiarity principle. For example, we must not be afraid to ask ourselves if it would be better to leave certain European initiatives to the Member States. The N-VA also identifies with the emphases that the ECR places on the social-economic issues. Since the 2014 elections, the ECR has become the third largest parliamentary group in the European Parliament. ECR group, of which the N-VA is part, has put forward Helga Stevens as candidate for President of the European Parliament. With six other candidates, Helga will participate in POLITICO’s European Parliament Presidential Debate on Wednesday, January 11.

This debate will be broadcast live from the Residence Palace in Brussels on POLITICO.eu beginning at 6:00 p.m. CET. The debate will be held in English, with interpretation in Italian and sign language to accommodate the candidates.
