The European People’s Party (EPP) is planning to nominate its candidate for the post of Commission President at an American-style “Convention” in Warsaw in April 2009 (s. Europolitique). However, the realisation of this idea depends on the future of the Lisbon Treaty EPP tells. In addition to a common candidate the EPP is also preparing a “common legislative programme” for the next term which is to be adopted in Warsaw at the same Convention.
But with a Convention in town and the close Polish-American relations I am only wondering if Obama or McCain (or Pope Benedict?) will be invited to speak to the European delegates?
