Innovative European Green Primaries for EP elections 2014
The European Green Party has launched an innovative and ambitious project to choose the two Green leading European candidates by means of an open online Europe-wide Green Primary for next European Parliament elections.
Prof. Arnold Cassola, Alternattiva Demokratika Chairperson, said "In 2004, when I was Secretary General of the European Green Party, the European Greens were frontrunners in organising the first pan-European campaign for European Elections. Ten years later, we will be the first European party to organise an open Europe-wide Online Primary to select our two leading candidates at European level.
"Through this democratic exercise, we will demonstrate that European politics can be different - participatory, interactive and democratic. The nominations, at European level, for these leading candidate posts are now open and the deadline for applications for candidacy and nomination by member parties is Sunday October 20. Candidates who receive the support of at least four Member Parties will then participate as Contenders in the Green Primary."
