Manfred Weber

President
My mission is Europe. In July 1972 I was born in the district of Landshut. I went to school in rural Wildenberg about an hour’s drive from Munich. It is where I still live today with my wife. My school career led me from the elementary school in Wildenberg to technical high school and later to a physical engineering degree at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich.Many of the valuable lessons in life I learned as a volunteer for the Catholic youth movement, playing in a band touring the region and participating in village life and the CSU youth organisation. My home and my youth have shaped the person I am today, I am proud of where I am from, just as I am a proud European. I chose to become a candidate for the European Parliament in 2004 because I wanted to work among Europeans. After the European elections in 2019, where I had the honour to be lead candidate for the EPP, I was re-elected EPP Group chair, after having been elected a first time in 2014. In the past ten years, I have worked closely with many EPP parties, because I believe profoundly that the EPP should be present locally to help our partners wherever our voters are.
