‘’The European Parliament Election: This Time Different?’’

Tuesday, May 14, 2019 - 16:00

Dear Members and Friends,

BritCham in cooperation with the American, German, Irish, Norwegian, Swedish and Swiss Chambers of Commerce kindly invite you to the pre-election debate to meet the candidates standing to represent Latvia in Europe from the political parties which according to the SKDS ratings get above 5% line.

Dr Jānis Ikstens, Acting Rector of the Riga Graduate School of Law will provide an overview of the political landscape and moderate the debate among the leading parties running for the European Parliament.

The topic of the debate will be ‘’The European Parliament Election: This Time Different?’’

This is keeping in mind that the elections in May might shake up the European Parliament, as established parties can lose seats to newcomers. The losses by established parties, growing polarisation, and competing visions of the EU might produce a more fragmented European Parliament.
