‘Kafè Ewropa’: making sense of the European elections

Starting tomorrow, tune in to 'Kafè Ewropa', a talkshow hosted by the editor of thejournal.mt, for insightful discussions about the upcoming European elections.

Have you ever thought about how much power the pencil you will hold in the polling booth on 8th June has to shape your future?

Starting tomorrow, tune in to ‘Kafè Ewropa’ for insightful discussions about the upcoming European elections. Airing every Friday on One Radio at 9am and simultaneously on One TV from 9.50am till 11am, the talk show will be hosted by Sandro Mangion, editor of thejournal.mt, who will be joined by guests for lively chats over coffee.

Kicking off the series, tomorrow’s first programme will feature a discussion with the Director General of the European Union Coordination Depatment (EUCD) within the Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade, Leandro Borg. He will delve into the key institutions of the European Union, with a special focus on the European Council. This is particularly timely as the European Council would just have concluded a two-day summit in Brussels for the heads of government or state of the EU member states.

Also joining in the talks show will be H.E. Marlene Bonnici, the Permanent Representative of Malta to the European Union.

In another section, Thomas Bajada, candidate for the European elections, will talk about the key issues that have consistently come up in his conversations with the electorate during the current election campaign.

‘Kafè Ewropa’ will also host two engaging panel discussions. The first one will focus on the procedures related to the European elections in Malta and in the rest of the European Union, and the guests will be the Chief Electoral Commissioner, Joseph Camilleri, and the Head of the Parliament Office European in Malta, Mario Sammut. The Head of the Electoral Office of the Labour Party, Louis Gatt, will also make an intervention. The second panel discussion will focus on the objective of European funds, how they are oganised and distributed. Guests in the studio will be the Head of Communication of Servizzi Ewropej f’Malta Malta (SEM – the government agency that acts as a gateway to EU funds in Malta and Gozo), Joe Sciberras, and Daniela Grech, Senior Manager of European Funds in the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister.

But that’s not all. To tantalise your taste buds, ‘Kafè Ewropa’ will delve into the concept of unity in diversity, the EU’s motto since 2000, by looking at Europe’s divese coffee scene, with variations depending on region, history, and cultural preferences.
