TV Nova | Why Should We Care About European Elections and Vote?

The European Parliament elections begin tomorrow. Viktor Daněk, deputy director of EUROPEUM Institute, discussed on the show "Snídaně s Novou" on TV Nova how popular the European elections are among Czechs, what voter turnout is expected, and also whether European officials are inventing new legislation on the spot.

Europe is our home, and we should care about how it functions. We can influence how it functions; the Czech voice is being heard more and more, and I believe we are increasingly respected partners, with others wanting to negotiate with us. Thirdly, what happens there affects the lives of each one of us, so we should strive to make our voices heard and decide our future ourselves.

You can watch the entire interview here from the 14th minute.
