Greens/EFA-Presidents on the Bulgarian Presidency
Greens/EFA co-president Ska Keller, who spoke for the group in the debate on the Bulgarian Presidency, calls on the presidency to live up to their motto, "United We Stand Strong":
"I hope that the Bulgarian Presidency will bring its motto to life and strengthen European cohesion. Important reforms such as the strengthening of the euro, a solidarity-based and humane asylum system and better climate protection are on the agenda this year. The only way we can achieve that is for everyone to work together.
“The Bulgarian Presidency must not close its eyes to attacks on fundamental rights and should work to ensure that the rule of law applies equally in all EU Member States. We stand with all the Bulgarian citizens that are taking to the streets against corruption and the commercial exploitation of Pirin National Park."
