ALDE and EPP form pro-European coalition

ALDE and EPP have formed a pro-European coalition to reform Europe. The coalition invites other Groups to join. 
EPP leader Manfred Weber said:
"The EPP Group has always been pushing for an approach that is based on partnership - we remain true to that principle and will continue to deliver.
We want to act together to bring results for European citizens and guarantee Europe's stability. Our partnership is based on content and on reforms for Europe. It is a pact for results. We invite all pro-European forces to join our partnership."

ALDE leader Guy Verhofstadt:

"This is a first important step in the construction of a pro-European coalition to reform and strengthen our union,which is absolutely necessary. With Trump, with Putin, with many other challenges Europe faces, it is key we cooperate to reform our Union.

Our coalition plan is open to all pro-European groups. It’s a coalition of ideas to change the direction of the European union. The agreement entails a European border and coast guard. A new governance for the eurozone to lift us out of the crisis. A European defence force to make Europe safe again. And we agreed also to examine whether a European intelligence and investigation capacity is necessary to fight terrorism and international crime."

As part of this political agreement, both Groups will back Antonio Tajani to become President of the European Parliament. Please find attached the text of the agreement. See below.
