EP President Introduces His Team
Newly elected European Parliament President, Antonio Tajani, moved swiftly to fulfil one of his campaign promises when he officially presented his cabinet on Wednesday.
President Tajani said: “It is only by working twice as hard to respond to the concerns of citizens that the European Parliament will win back the general public's trust. I look forward to the challenge, working for all Europeans over the next two and a half years.
As I promised during the election, I have put together a cabinet that is gender and geographically balanced, with fourteen nationalities represented, its overall size reduced by 20%. My team will be at the service of EU citizens and MEPs.”
The President also appointed an adviser whose tasks will be to focus specifically on relations with MEPs, peripheral regions and islands, as well as linguistic minorities.
