Ireland’s largest political party, Fine Gael, will host the Congress to launch the 2014 European election campaign of the European People’s Party (EPP). The Congress will take place in Dublin, from the 6th to the 7th of March 2014, at the Dublin Convention Centre.
This Congress will bring together the heads of government, party leaders, ministers, national and European parliamentarians, and delegates from EPP member parties throughout Europe. The President of the EPP-CD at Council of Europe, Pedro Agramunt, is expected to attend the two day Congress which will launch the EPP’s campaign for the 2014 European Parliament elections, by approving its manifesto and selecting the EPP’s candidate for President of the European Commission. Starting from Dublin, the EPP presidential candidate will campaign in all Member States of the European Union until the scheduled European elections in May 2014.
The EPP is the largest political party at European level, with 13 EU heads of government, 13 members of the European Commission and 73 member parties across 40 countries. The Congress will bring together heads of government, party leaders, ministers, national and European parliamentarians, and delegates from all EPP member parties throughout Europe. The 2014 Congress will be the largest ever event organised by the EPP and will attract much international media attention, with hundreds of journalists from around the world expected to attend.
