ACRE Candidate Debated President of the Union of European Federalists
ACRE’s lead candidate Jan Zahradil debated the President of the Union of European Federalists Sandro Gozi in one of the first Spitzenkadidat debates in Brussels. The debate in the Brussels Microsoft headquarters, moderated by journalist Chris Burns, focused on the future of Europe but also discussed migration and the EU budget. One issue both politicians agreed on was that the Single Market benefits the EU.
Jan Zahradil told the invited audience that the ECR was the leading pro-European reform party with a plan to ensure the EU is scaled back to become more flexible, prosperous and respectful of national governments.
