DiEM25 Electoral Wing

Taking DiEM25’s progressive agenda to the ballots: proponents make their case

We’re only a few days away from the most important decision since our movement launched in 2016: Should we establish an ‘electoral wing’, which will enable us to compete in elections and bring our Progressive Agenda to ballots across Europe? The vote is underway (deadline: Tuesday!), and every DiEM25 member can have their say.
While there is ample information on this vital matter in the form of articles and videos in our site, and a passionate debate is going on in our forum and social media channels, our Coordinating Collective (CC) wants to give us as much information as possible to help members decide. Therefore, we approached the authors of the proposals currently up for vote and asked them to provide further insight on their proposals.
Our plan was to record a video debate among the proponents, with members asking questions. Unfortunately, because of technical difficulties, ensuring the presence of all proponents proved impossible. Hosting a debate without all four proposal authors present would have been unfair.
So we’re going for the next best thing: a common set of questions to allow proponents to further explain their ideas and why they believe their proposal is best for DiEM25 to take its fight with the Establishment to the electoral arena. Visit our forum and take part in the discussion now!
This is a major step for our movement, for it will allow us to take our fight to another level.
But democracy starts at home, and this is a decision we must make together. So log into the Members Area now to make your voice heard!
Carpe DiEM!
