Pan-European party secures Five Seats in European Elections

Pan-European party secures Five Seats in European ElectionsIn a historic moment for European politics, Volt, a pan-European party, has secured five seats in the European Parliament following its second electoral race. The newly elected Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) will represent voters across Europe, transcending national boundaries.

The diverse group of Volt MEPs includes Anna Strolenberg and Reinier van Lanschot from the Netherlands, as well as Damian Boeselager, Nela Riehl, and Kai Tegethoff from Germany. Notably, Damian Boeselager, who was the first Volt MEP elected in 2019, has once again secured his seat.

Volt’s mission centres on democratic reform within the European Union to make the election more European etc., fair migration policies, concrete steps toward a European army, renewable energy supply across the continent, and empowering citizens within socially just societies. While Volt’s pan-European policies are developed at the European level, their execution occurs through national and local bodies.

Francesca Romana D’Antuono, Co-President of Volt, emphasised the party’s growth:

“In 2019, Volt was electable in seven countries, having been founded just two years prior. Now, we’ve expanded to 15 countries, backed by over 24,000 members across Europe.”

Mels Klabbers, Co-President of Volt Europa, highlighted the party’s unique approach:

“Our Volt MEPs don’t merely represent their home nations; they share a collective European identity. We don’t have Dutch or German MEPs; we have European MEPs representing citizens across borders.”

Volt’s vision is a progressive Europe with a democratically elected European government, a socially just society, a climate-protecting economy, and self-determined digitalization. The party believes that grassroots democratic participation is essential for Europe’s sustainable and socially equitable future.

Across the continent, thousands of people of all ages and professions are involved in Volt’s movement, shaping its goals and advocating for change in over 30 countries and hundreds of cities.
