News - 14 Giugno European Citizens Want to Protect and Change Europe The unexpected new thing revealed by the elections is the fact that political forces that are not against the institutional system (ALDE and the Greens) have been able to attract and provide political representation to the demand for (a better) Europe. It is to be hoped that this demand will not be betrayed. Europe needs profound innovation in a plurality of strategic fields of policy – the environment, the job market, the fight against inequalities, the economy, migration, social cohesion, trade, security and rights. It is to be hoped that the new political order emerging from the ballot box will enable the democratic forces to deal with this huge task adequately. The opportunities to learn from mistakes are infinite.
