Verhofstadt candidate for the Presidency of the European Parliament
ALDE leader Guy Verhofstadt: "I am convinced that the ongoing play off between the two big groups is not in the interest of the Parliament nor of the Union."
"This is the time for a candidate with a proven ability to lead a broad coalition and who can unite the pro-European forces in this house, putting the interest of the European citizens first."
"The European Parliament must act and raise up to the challenges we are facing. In the attached manifesto and this video I explain how I want to achieve this ambitious goal."
