It’s with great sadness that we acknowledge the loss of David Sassoli, European Parliament President and former journalist.

On behalf of the whole staff of ALDA, its Governing Board and entire network, we will always remember Mr Sassoli as a convinced and committed European politician and activist, a person who could wisely lead one of the most important but complex Institution, as the European Parliament, since July 2019.

Davide Sassoli contributed to lead European policies and politics  in an extremely difficult period with a remarkable know-how and a solid set of principles: respect, loyalty and coherence to the cause.

Being the Parliament the EU institution which best represents its citizens, since its members are directly elected every five years through universal suffrage, David Sassoli perfectly represented the values carried on by ALDA: citizens participation, active commitment, solidarity, tolerance, equality, justice and much more.

Our condolences go to its family, his close colleagues, friends and to all who knew and appreciated him.

May he rest in peace.
