At EPP congress in Helsinki, PNL to endorse Manfred Weber in running for President of the European Commission

The National Liberal Party (PNL) will back up in the European People's Party (EPP) congress Manfred Weber in running for President of the European Commission, according to PNL leader Ludovic Orban.

"As you well know, the European People's Party (EPP) decided to designate a candidate to run in the elections to the European Parliament for the office of President of the European Commission, on behalf of the EPP, with this candidate to be announced as early as possible, in order for the citizens of the EU member states to be able to know him. The candidate will have to present the general guidelines of the EPP's programme, which is the most powerful political family in the EP, PNL being a member of it. The decision related to the designation of the candidate to represent the EPP in the elections for the President of the European Commission will be made at the EPP Congress in Helsinki. Today, PNL decided to support the candidacy of Mr. Manfred Weber, who is today the President of the EPP's parliamentary group in the EP, and the PNL delegates will participate in the EPP Congress in Helsinki to vote for the candidacy of Mr. Manfred Weber," stated Ludovic Orban, at Parliament on Thursday, at the end of the meeting of the National Political Bureau of the PNL.
