The Greens/EFA group has nominated Austrian MEP Ulrike Lunacek as candidate for the post of European Parliament president. At this press conference, Ulrike Lunacek will outline her candidacy and her reasons for contesting the EP presidency. In particular, she will highlight the need to ensure a real contest for the post and to prevent the European Parliament being merely used as a rubber-stamp for a backroom deal on the top posts in the EU institutions by EU governments.
