Step by step people are waking up to the potential of expat voters in elections, or at least realising that the formalities of organising elections need to be improved. According to EUObserver, the European Commission is looking at the issues around getting nationals of other EU states to run, and to avoid the bureaucratic hurdles that prevent this at the moment. I’m particularly glad to see that the Commission is looking at the prohibition on party membership for other EU nationals in 7 states, an issue that I came across at the PES Congress. Last but not least, the work we are doing in LME-LSE in light of our Polish Voter event fits in with all of this very neatly.
