You are invited to a briefing on the European Parliament’s upcoming information campaign on the European elections at the European Parliament Office in Ireland, 43 Molesworth Street, Dublin 2, from 10.30 am  - 12.00 am on Wednesday 2 October.

Political Scientist David Farrell of UCD and Irish Times former EU correspondent Arthur Beesley will be among the contributors.

The European Parliament that will be elected in 2014 will be very different from any elected previously. Why?

First, because the Lisbon Treaty has handed extensive powers to the European Parliament on EU laws, the EU budget, international treaties and other areas. Parliament now has the power to change the way the European Union is governed and the policies that are adopted every day at European level.  This time, more than ever, voting will make a difference.

Second, the European political groups of the European Parliament plan for the first time plan to go into the European Elections with their own candidates for the post of President of the European Commission.

This time, more than ever, voting will make a difference!
