• EP 2019 – The European Left: One Mouth, Many Voices

  • In a month from now the European Elections will take place. These elections, though seem not to be the center of attention for the European people, are about the very future of the European Union and all its members states. It's about democracy, social and political rights and reversing the vicious circle of austerity. Transform and all its member and observer organisations have engaged themselves to a project that aims to monitor the electoral process from a progressive and leftist perspective. This focus hosts alls the activities related with the "European Elections 2019 Monitoring Project."

    Transform! europe wishes to contribute to a strategy that will unite the left, not only for the sake of the unity, but for the sake of the European people’s interests and the fight against the Far Right that gains more ground with each passing day.
