Transnational List - Council Meeting II

Europe's pioneer transnational list council to gather in Lisbon

The historic Transnational List Council launched last month in Naples will meet again next week in Lisbon. Right on the anniversary of the country’s Carnation Revolution, the list’s co-founders, as well as observers representing various political forces from across Europe, will gather again to continue developing the pioneer effort to present a united political front in next year’s European Parliament Elections.
 


 
The second collective meeting among the founding members of Europe’s first transnational political list will take place on Thursday, April 26 at Lisbon’s Biblioteca de São Lázaro.
Among the various items on the meeting’s agenda, the Council will be deciding on a name for the common list, and will hold a political discussion on the list’s relation to other movements, parties, and 2019 lists with input from attending observers. In addition, the transnational list’s Provisional Governing Council will vote on an Ethical Code – Declaration of Standards, the list’s candidates to the European Parliamentary elections are bound to observe. The group will also continue discussing and developing the list’s political program based on the agreed pillars in the founding meeting in Naples.
