Speaking at the opening of the political season, ALDE Party President Sir Graham Watson said: "Europe must recognise today the contribution that talented and ambitious immigrants can make to our society."
In August, only two weeks after an EU/US-brokered political agreement was reached to end the Macedonian political deadlock, ALDE Party Vice President and LI President of Honour Hans van Baalen MEP was in Skopje for meetings with the leadership of the Liberal Democratic Party and the united opposition.
ALDE Party President Sir Graham Watson expressed his dismay on behalf of European Liberal Democrats about the recent conviction of the Al-Jazeera journalists in Egypt. The judgement of last Saturday, 29 August, undermines the trust in the democratic stability of the country.
On Tuesday 22 September in the European Parliament in Brussels, individual members of the ALDE Party in Belgium will discuss "Creating a success story: a Liberal approach for 21st century challenges". You are kindly invited.
