Network for a European Constitution
Brussels, 27 February 2002
CONVENTION ON THE FUTURE OF THE EU:
FEDERALIST CONTACT GROUP ESTABLISHED
Supporters of a European Federal Constitution have gathered in a common
platform to present the federalist case to the Convention on the future
of the EU.
"Federalist Voice: Network for a European Constitution"
has been established in Brussels on Saturday, 24 February, by the "European
Constitution" Intergroup within the European Parliament, the European
Ligue for Economic Cooperation (ELEC), the European Young Socialists (ECOSY),
the Gauche européenne, the International European Movement, the
Liberal and Radical Youth Movement of the European Union (LYMEC), the
Réalités Européennes du Présent, the Union
of European Federalists (U.E.F.) and the Young European Federalists (JEF).
Environmental, social and other NGOs are gathering to be admitted to hearings
with the Convention. Pro-European and federalist organisations should
be given the same right. The network will follow the work of the Convention
on the future of the EU closely and make its own contributions
so that the Convention delivers genuine reform of the Union and elaborates
a federal Constitution which can bring more democracy, efficiency
and accountability for the whole of Europe.
