European Elections Motivational Campaign Presented in Zadar

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, May 21, 2019 – Representatives of the European Parliament Office in Croatia and the Zadar-based Europe Direct information centre on Monday held a session of the “This time I’m voting” motivational campaign for Zadar University students, calling on them to vote at the European elections on May 26 because less than 13% of young people had voted at the last EU election.

The head of the EP Office in Croatia, Violeta Simeonova Staničić, underscored that the new European Parliament would not only decide who would lead the European Union but would also distribute its finances and that it was uncertain whether more money would be allocated for cohesion funds, rural development, Erasmus+ or some other projects.

Simeonova Staničić said that there was currently a huge wave of groups and parties in the European Union wishing to enter the European Parliament, use EU funds, enter into the heart of the EU and work on its disintegration and on the destruction of European projects.

Students were informed of the problems currently facing the EU and what possibilities are being offered to Croatia within the EU as well as why it is important to go to the polls on May 26.

A survey conducted by the EP Office in Croatia shows that young Croatians believe that employment and climate change are the most important problems in the EU and they want European solutions to those problems first, she said.

“This time I’m voting” is the European Parliament’s institutional, non-partisan communication action, aimed at promoting democratic engagement in the European elections.
