The making of a European president by Nereo Peñalver García( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the inside story of how a "putsch" was organised in a Europe in crisis, how a small group of European politicians from different parties brought about the biggest change in twenty years in the way the EU decides its leadership. The authors describe first-hand Europe's first presidential campaign, the personalities, how the candidates were chosen, the controversies and incidents on the campaign trail, the policy differences, the rallies in the battleground states, the use of social media, and the TV debates. It gives a blow-by-blow account of how Europe's most powerful leading governments were forced to make a humiliating climb-down and accept the election of a leader they did not support, chosen by a process they opposed. But the book also analyses critically this new way of electing the President, what needs to change for 2019, and sets what happened in a broader historical context. A unique trip to the "kitchen" of EU politics."--Publisher's website

European political parties : the missing link by Julian Priestley( Book )

The next European elections will take place in 2014. Why then focus today on the participation of European citizens on this vote? The answer is simple: if we want to reverse the decline in participation over the last thirty years which paradoxically has taken place at the same time the European Parliament has been steadily gaining power within European institutions, we must act now. But, above all, the question of the relationship between citizens and European institutions is an issue that deserves better than to be taken up, at best, every five years. The organisation of the European debate at the level of both the Union and of Member states as well as the clarification and the politicisation of European issues are essential to giving life to European democracy on a daily basis. Changes in the European Parliament itself and in its method of election may contribute to the improvement of democratic practice in the EU. Notre Europe has published in conjunction with this text by Julian Priestley, a pamphlet by Andrew Duff which contains several proposals going in that direction. But much can and should be done to improve the functioning of European political parties, which remain, despite their limitations, the key engines of democratic debate and citizen choice. This publication by Julian Priestley opportunely discusses key reforms that the parties should undertake in order to prepare to assume full responsibility. These two publications by Notre Europe do not, of course, cover all of the subject. Most of their recommendations will likely improve after discussion or development. But they fuel a debate that must take place at the risk of remaining sluggish in the coming years ... until the next election or referendum again - albeit too late - sounds an alarm about the soundness of the European project

European political parties : learning from 2014, preparing for 2019 by Nereo Peñalver García( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

N. Peñalver and J. Priestley analyse Europe's political parties in the context of the 2014 campaign and the "Spitzenkandidaten" process, and present lessons to be learned from this first pan-European exercise in the perspective of the 2019 Elections. The 2014 European elections were the first in which European political parties fielded lead candidates for the presidency of the Commission. They each devised procedures for selecting their nominees, and tried to inject a European element into European Parliament election campaigns which had hitherto been essentially national trials of strength. Starting late they organised Europe-wide campaign tours for their 'presidential' candidates, negotiated conditions for the first televised debates between them, made European policy pronouncements and promoted intensely their programmes and candidates through social media. The parliamentary leadership stood firm and ensured that the European Council put forward the lead candidate best placed to command majority parliamentary support. The Spitzenkandidaten gamble, long supported by the Jacques Delors Institute, paid off. But if the parliamentarisation of the nominations for top jobs in the EU has been immeasurably strengthened by what happened in 2014, the political party campaigns seldom broke through the layers of media scepticism and voter indifference. The decline in voter turnout, a constant since 1979, may have levelled out but was not reversed. The parties fought the campaign with severe handicaps (influence of national actors, lack of resources, delays ...) identified by this Policy paper. N. Peñalver and J. Priestley underlines that the new method of electing a Commission president is likely to become a permanent feature in a new inter institutional balance. But they add that if the full promise of linking the Commission presidency to the outcome of the elections is to be realised, much needs to be changed for 2019, in particular at the European parties' level: - the parties should enhance their internal democracy by involving party members and activists in the major decisions; - they should build on their campaigning activities and develop early a strategy for involving their respective national parties in a strategy for European elections; - their budgets and staffing should be augmented significantly but made conditional on internal democratic reforms; - they should develop their policy-making potential and recruit key campaigners early; - they should seek to ensure that the televised debates reach a wider audience which requires negotiating in advance with national broadcasters; - most importantly, they should widen the franchise for selecting their lead candidates, preferably through open primaries, as a way of extending ownership of the Spitzenkandidaten process and promoting a real debate about European choices; - and they should start their preparations for the 2019 European Parliament elections now

An anatomy of a speech by Julian Priestley( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Just after Mr Cameron's speech on the UK's relations with Europe on 23 January 2013, Julian Priestley analyses it in a Tribune. According to him, the speech consists in a reversal of 40 years of British policy on the EU. He expects Mr Cameron scenario to be a failure and hopes the Opposition might develop a more far-seeing vision of Europe."--Editor
