ČT24 | Candidates for the European Parliament elections

Historically, there has been relatively low interest in elections to the European Parliament, and the same is likely to be true this year. In the Czech Republic and Slovakia, this interest is the lowest compared to other European countries. The main reason for this is the long-neglected debate on the European Union in the Czech Republic. Viktor Daněk, deputy director of the EUROPEUM Institute, commented on the issue and European elections for ČT24.

We see examples of MEPs who have understood that if they want to get into the public arena, then they need to raise completely different topics, which are often only marginally or even not at all related to what the European Parliament actually does.

You can listen to the full interview here from minute 5 onwards.
