In less than a week, Jerzy Buzek will finish his mandate as President of the European Parliament. His successor will then be elected by MEPs in a secret ballot. At Debating Europe, we’ve already touched on this topic here. We also had a chance to interview Diana Wallis this week about her candidacy (you can read her responses to your questions here).
Today, at 16:00 CET (i.e. in two hours time), there will be a live “Presidential Debate” between the three candidates in the European Parliament, organised by European Voice, with the support of VoteWatch.eu, Burson Marsteller, EU40 and Debating Europe.
You can view the livestream of the debate here at 16:00 CET
