Just a quick plug for the ‘Who’s Your Candidate?‘ campaign 2009 being run by the Danish pro-EU / centre-left organisation Nyt Europa. While the changes to how the European Commission President is elected in the Reform Treaty are rather cosmetic, it’s nevertheless right to push MEPs and European Political Parties to name their candidates for Commission President and go out campaigning in 2009 stating who their candidate will be. I’ll be keeping an eye on the Nyt Europa efforts, and it might be good to make some interactive online campaigns around it too.
