Among other things, I have been driving a better emissions trading system, ensuring an increase in renewable energy in Europe, and have been leading in sharpening of antibiotic use to healthy animals. And there is more to do".
After Fredrick Federley, the nomination committee have proposed 9 more candidates. On place number 2 is Abir Al-Sahlani. She is currently working as a project manager at the Center Party.

Her goal is to work to create a Europe where no one is left behind. Through equality, participation and opportunities she wants to build a European Union that is relevant to the citizens.
On place number 3 is Emma Wiesner, Master of Science in Engineering. With roots in Västerås, Emma has been involved in the Centre movement since 2006, among other things in the youth federation and now most recently as a member of the federal board of the Center students.
