Will DiEM25 compete in elections across the EU? Our members will decide this week.

Wednesday, November 1 is the next step in our struggle to reclaim our institutions and transform EU democracy. Because that’s when our members will start voting on whether we will establish an ‘electoral wing’, which will enable us to compete in elections and bring our Progressive Agenda to ballots across Europe.

Of course, members also have the option to vote against establishing an ‘electoral wing’ at all!
