The European People’s Party Congress takes place this Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th in Warsaw. The congress will put the finishing touches to the EPP Manifesto and will probably be the launch for the European Campaign.
Fine Gael’s Enda Kenny will be addressing the Congress on Wednesday as one of the EPP opposition leaders. He will be the last of the speakers on Wednesdays before the Non-EU leaders speak on Thursday.
I was invited to the congress by the EPP but unfortunately I cannot attend. I would have loved to have gone as I would have loved to attend some of the side events which look really interesting. The ones that stand out are
- Centre for European Studies: Conference on the democratisation of Belarus – 29th April 9:30 – 13:00
- European Democratic Students: Conference on student issues in the EP elections – 29th April 10:00 – 13:00
- Youth of the European People’s Party: Round Table 29th April 10:30 – 12:30
The Congress will be live streamed on the EPP’s Dialogue TV. For more information on the Congress see EPPWarsaw.eu. I may be live blogging the congress from the streaming on Thursday if i dont go canvassing with Colm Burke.
PS: There is also a new EPP Twitter Twibe, do join it to keep up to date!
