Swoboda: “Angela Merkel is the chancellor of Germany, not of Europe – and not of the European Parliament”
With two weeks to go until the European elections, Angela Merkel is reportedly trying to influence the internal functioning of the European Parliament, attempting to prevent the President of the European Parliament from chairing meetings.
Hannes Swoboda, president of the Socialists and Democrats Group in the European Parliament, said:
“Ms Merkel seems to have forgotten what her job is. There is no justification for any head of government meddling with internal European Parliament business.
“It may be a sign of nervousness from Ms Merkel and the EPP ahead of the European elections, but it is also a sign of pure arrogance that she thinks she can determine who chairs which meetings in the Parliament.
“We welcome the fact that – at least according to Jean-Claude Juncker – Ms Merkel seems to have brushed up on her EU knowledge and understood and endorsed the democratic process of this year’s elections. But this does not make her a kingmaker; it makes her one of 28 voices in the European Council.”
