Next in our series profiling the various party manifestos in the European Parliament elections is the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE). As usual, the infographic below represents some of the policies that caught our eye, but there’s much more in the ALDE manifesto (and you can read it in full on their website).

So, what do ALDE believe? We’ve taken some of the main points from their manifesto and presented them below (click for a bigger image). There’s much more in the manifesto itself, but these are some of the policies that stand out:

If you like the sound of these policies, make sure to support ALDE in our Me&EU series! Or, if you think the ALDE manifesto would take Europe in the wrong direction, stay tuned as we will be looking at each of the others parties’ positions in turn.

    I’ think the ALDE, group is taking initiative more pragmatically in all issues whether European or international. This is one of the most pragmatic group in the Europeen Parliament.

    I don’t know about other countries, but, at least here in Romania, ALDE stands for opportunism, compromise and treason of the liberal values, so this manifesto might be valid somewhere else, but here I doubt it is.

    No. I support the Europe of Nations…

    I mean the manifesto places them firmly in what one might call the center-left of parliament. Everything on the list is something I agree with on some level, but it’s still a compromised version of what I would rather have. For example hosting refugees outside the eu just sounds like a way for us to shirk our legal and moral responsibility to allow them into our countries.
    I do like the idea of an EU guarantee of the rule of law in constituent countries. We can’t force countries to pass the same laws but at the very least, we have to guarantee that the laws are enforced equally, we all have the right to a fair trial in a clean courtroom. Maybe some kind of damping mechanism that prevents the kind of nonsense that Poland’s governments tried to do with their Supreme Court.
    Some things left off the manifesto, for example, would be a unified tax plan to prevent corporate tax competition within the EU. That’s a bit of a big deal.
