Today in Sibiu at the EPP Summit, we showed that Europe and the EPP are united ahead of the European elections.


In Sibiu we also celebrated Europe Day: I believe the founding fathers would be proud of what has been achieved, and we should be too. Let’s honour the past by building an even stronger, safer and more prosperous union.


We gathered in Sibiu with the EPP’s European leaders to reaffirm the need for a united Europe and to defend the fundamental values of our family. This Europe is our Europe: with some egoistic voices back in Europe, we as the EPP will defend the European project.


The future European Commission under my leadership will strengthen the rule of law so that all Europeans can live in a society where independence of the judiciary and freedom of the press are guaranteed, and where we fight effectively against corruption.
