Liberals are ready to take on the new year

On January, the ALDE Party launched a small video-series featuring nine liberal leaders from all over Europe and their political resolutions for 2022. From translating citizens’ ideas into concrete actions in the context of the Conference on the Future of Europe to defending democracy and rule of law, liberals are ready to make the most out of this new year.

The series kicked-off with Guy Verhofstadt MEP, who stated his compromise to push for a more united European Union that can defend the interests and values of its citizens in the new world order and continued with Senator Emma Bonino, whose resolution was to keep striving for a federal Europe.

Then it was the turn of ALDE Party Acting Co-Presidents Ilhan Kyuchyuk MEP and Senator Timmy Dooley, who expressed their excitement to bring liberals together at ALDE Party’s Congress in Dublin for the first time in two years to work towards Europe’s feature.

Speaking about Europe’s future, Svenja Hahn MEP confirmed her determination to turn the Conference on the Future of Europe from a listening exercise into real reforms of the EU. ALDE Party is deeply engaged with this unprecedented democratic process and will host an event to gather the input of citizens on 9 February. You can learn more about our proposals and events on the Conference here.

On that note, LYMEC President Antoaneta Asenova-Bihlmayer is decided to make Europe’s Year of Youth count so that the ideas of young people are translated into concrete actions at the European level. You can access LYMEC’s proposals for political and institutional reforms for Europe’s future here and here.

The series closed with ALDE Party Vice-Presidents Annelou van Egmond, Alexander Graf Lambsdorff MP and Daniel Berg, who will continue fighting for democracy and rule of law making sure that liberal parties remain active on those portfolios, striving for a stronger and freer Europe, and deliver freedom and democracy.

This is a fight that ALDE Party is taking up seriously. Most recently, we are working for a European-wide diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics to protest China’s human rights abuses. You can participate by signing our petition here.
