From the 4th to the 7th of June, European citizens will elect their representants for the European Union. The European Parliament, composed by 785 MEPs, is the only European institution elected through direct universal suffrage. It’s the citizen’s voice in the EU legislative process.
By voting in the European elections in June you decide what the EU will be like for the 5 upcoming years.
On this occasion, the AEDH has prepared a series of cards in the form of question-answers on various key topics related to human rights, that it puts at the disposal of its members. Therefore, the AEDH invites the citizens and residents of the European Union to call on their candidates for the European elections on these sensible questions.
The information was sent by one of our individual members from Czech Republic.
The AEDH warmly welcomes this initiative of the Czech civil society.
