We are happy to share the verbatim of what the Vice-President Viviane Reding said while receiving the EYCA’s policy recommendations from its chairmain, Jean-Marc Roirant:

“80 sentences… There are days and nights, months inside this piece of works. Meetings, reflections coming out from those meetings from an uncountable number of citizens from all countries.

I know what efforts were put into those 80 recommendations, and I can say today that all those 80 recommendations will be analysed and used for our actions.

At the end of the European Year of Citizens, next May, the Commission will present a report on citizens, on what they have communicated, to me and to other commissioners, through the 1 million questions received every year by the Commission and to what the Commission has to answer – and answers, and to the 80 recommendations you put together.

So they will be part of our report on citizenship, a report which will go on the table of political parties so that they can use them, in front of their electors, because we want a participatory debate, with high involvement, during the campaign; this debate would lead to a better election for European MEP, those who will have the burden to make laws, to pave the way for 507 million citizens. You are very well represented, you have something important to say and that ‘someting’ is there, I thank you and ensure it will be taken into consideration.”
