CAL calls for involvement in the development of European Political Guidelines

By 15 September 2020, the people and organisations of the European Union are invited to take part in the development of EC Political Guidelines, which will also set out the European Democracy Action Plan. The European Democracy Action Plan aims to ensure that citizens can participate in a democratic system through informed decision-making, without interference or manipulation affecting elections and democratic debate.

The EC has started preparing the European Democracy Action Plan and wants to consult the public on three major subjects:

Integrity of elections and the way to ensure a free and fair electoral system;

Strengthening media freedom and media pluralism;

Prevention of misinformation;

In addition, the consultation also addresses the cross-cutting issue of supporting civil society and active citizenship. More information can be found here.
