We put citizens at the heart of our Europe. The people have to decide about Europe’s future. We want to ensure greater citizens participation and engagement, greater accountability for decisions, with a livelier parliamentary democracy at the national level and a stronger European Parliament at its core. Democracy and the safeguarding of human rights and freedoms, the rule of law, and the separation of powers are at the heart of our European identity. However, we need to deepen democracy and develop it further at the European level.
