Labour’s EU policy: a look back and ahead

‘Kafè Ewropa’ dives deep tomorrow: the evolution of Labour's EU policy, equality progress on the EU level under European Commissioner Helena Dalli, and much more.

How has the Labour Party’s policy vis-à-vis the European Union evolved over time? Sandro Mangion, editor of The Journal, will have a conversation with the party’s Chief Executive, Randolph De Battista, on this issue during Kafè Ewropa, One Radio’s weekly European election talk show, airing this Friday morning.

The programme will also include an interview with Helena Dalli, European Commissioner for Equality, to discuss the progress made by the EU towards equality during her tenure.

Other guests on the talk show are Mario Fava, President of the Local Councils Association, and Samuel Azzopardi, President of the Gozo Region, who will talk about the important link that exists between voting in both the European and local elections.

Also joining the programme is Joe Sciberras, Head of Communications and Outreach at Servizzi Ewropej f’Malta (SEM), the government agency that acts as a central hub for Maltese citizens and organisations seeking information and resources related to the EU. He will shed light on the various EU funding opportunities available to local communities, NGOs, and even individuals.

The programme will go live to The Hague, with H.E. Jeffrey Curmi, Malta’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Permanent Representative to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). The Ambassador will share his insights on the mood in that country as it braces itself for the upcoming European elections, the Maltese disapora there, and how EU membership affects bilateral relations with Malta.

European election candidates Clint Azzopardi Flores and Daniel Attard will talk about the key issues that have consistently come up in their conversations with the electorate during the current election campaign.

To ensure listeners are in the loop on the electoral process, Louis Gatt, Head of the PL’s Electoral Office, will be providing the most up-to-date information.

The programme kicks off on One Radio (92.7FM) at 9am and then simulcasts live on One TV from 9.50am until 11am.
