For more than 15 years, I have had the privilege and responsibility to serve as the Secretary General of the European People’s Party. This is a thrilling experience. Over this time, the EPP has engaged constructively with the main EU institutions.
In the past, our focus was to organise meetings with our Prime Ministers prior to the European Council. The EPP has expanded its work in the Council with the EPP Ministerial meetings. We currently run a total of 10: EcoFin, Foreign Affairs, Energy, Environment, Agriculture, Defence, Justice, Home Affairs, Trade and General Affairs. The EPP also organises meetings with the EPP members of the Commission, which currently number 10 including its President, Ursula von der Leyen, the first woman ever to lead the European Commission. The EPP also has a mandate to organise pan-European campaigns for the European elections. In 2009 we launched our first victorious Europe-wide campaign. In 2014 we developed the means to have a broader and even more effective campaign. In 2019, the EPP once again won the European elections
