The elections to the European Parliament
have shown that European citizens made Europe their business. The turnout we
have seen is the highest since decades, and the business community has been more active in this campaign than ever before by motivating its constituency to go to vote. It is also very important that the results show that there is an ample, a huge pro-European majority. We would like to congratulate all newly elected members of the European Parliament, and we’re looking forward to constructively working together with the newly elected European Parliament.
