💬Dear friends, it is with deep emotion that I address you at #EPPZagreb today, in my final speech as EPP President. The end of a mandate is always an opportunity to reflect, to take stock of your successes & failures. Image
💬A priority as EPP President has been building a closer cooperation with #WesternBalkans countries. We honour the late President Martens by continuing to defend the European path of the #WesternBalkans, said @JosephDaul
💬My proudest achievement has been ensuring the #EPP remains united. We are a family of many different perspectives but one that remains true to our founders Christian Democratic values, European commitment & faith in the social market economy, said @JosephDaul at #EPPZagreb
💬@donaldtusk is a friend, gifted with humor & perspective. As @eucopresident, he united leaders from different political families to achieve consensus. I am confident that now he will lead EPP through challenges ahead, with solutions anchored in our values, said @JosephDaul Image

We need to discuss hypocrisy: The holier-than-thou S&D Group is at the epicenter of #Qatargate. It’s time they are held accountable. Their lecturing on rule of law has now been proven to be hypocritical. 1/
We need to discuss ownership: There has been a consistent effort to turn #Qatargate into an institutional issue alone. But this scandal is not an orphan. It did not appear out of nowhere. It did not happen by itself. It has a name. It has an address. And that’s the S&D Group. 2/
We need to discuss substance: Let’s not mince words. This S&D scandal goes beyond 'meet and greets'. It affected real decisions & legislation. To attack the @EPPGroup on their stance re urgency measures following these events shows how deep the left's disdain for democracy is. 3/

The EU must now redefine our relationship with China to:

👉recognize the challenge China poses
👉 strengthen cooperation with our democratic allies
👉 defend our core values & international world order.

More about EPP’s position on China 👇

EPP welcomes China’s participation in global efforts to develop a #COVID19 vaccine.

We also recognise China’s attempts to control global narrative on COVID-19, deflect criticism of its own handling of the crisis & erode citizens’ trust in national & EU institutions
EPP calls for
👉an independent investigation into human rights violations against Uyghurs in Xinjiang
👉release of imprisoned human rights defenders, dissidents & others, incl. 🇸🇪citizen Gui Minhai
👉free access to Tibet
👉the finalisation of EU’s Global Sanctions Regime

💬Welcome our leaders, delegates, guests & the press to #Zagreb as we kick off our 2-day #EPPZagreb Congress. It's an important Congress as @EPP delegates will elect a new leadership & vote on the party's stance on important policies. Image
💬With a new President and a new Presidency, the @EPP enters a new era. EPP was once again victorious in #EP2019 European elections & managed to elect again an EPP Commission President, but we must now change too to improve & adapt to new realities Image
