European integration opens up opportunities and chances for us that we would never have had alone, even as Germans. We have to seize these opportunities and make Europe better together. We need a Europe that puts people first.
Europe is our future. We politicians are elected for the future, not for the past. Politics must shape the future with the goal of making people's lives better. I fight for a more humane and democratic Europe.
As Chairman of the EPP Group, I am committed to a Europe of values that is united, open, capable of action and above all close to its citizens. The European People's Party unites Christian Democratic and Liberal-Conservative parties from almost all Member States. With over 180 members of parliament, the EPP group is the strongest political force in the parliament.
Europe is not a melting pot. The greatest attraction and wealth is the diversity in the EU. Our task is to combine this diversity. I advocate not losing sight of what is essential. Not every problem in Europe is also a task for the EU.

🎥 The @EPPGroup's leader, Manfred Weber, tells DW there is no alternative to the EU's deal with Tunisia, that parties need to work together on solutions. It comes amid criticism of the agreement because of Tunisia's human rights abuses towards migrants.
Zajedno s @vonderleyen i @ManfredWeber obratio sam se @EPPGroup. Usred brojnih kriza, ostali smo vjerni svojim vrijednostima, pokazali liderstvo i ostvarili rezultate! Kao najveća politička obitelj, @EPP daje odgovore na gospodarske, sigurnosne, energetske i demografske izazove.
It's a great pleasure to have @vonderleyen with us at our Study Days. In the face of huge challenges, like Covid & the war in Ukraine, Europe took the right decisions. We are proud of that. We will continue to build a Europe that protects & creates opportunities for all. #EPP2024
Thank you, dear @RobertaMetsola and @GabrielMariya, for your leadership and courage to take responsibility in such challenging times. We are proud to have such great EPP women in leading positions in Europe!
Starting our Study Days in Split, Croatia 🇭🇷! All eyes on the European elections and our @EPPGroup Strategy for 2024. We need a Europe that matters to people and brings them together, that protects & shapes our common future!
In a democracy, plurality of media is a strength not a threat! Seeing journalists, editors and directors fired overnight from the Slovenian national broadcaster, @RTV_Slovenija is alarming. We call upon the @VeraJourova to act immediately. We will not tolerate double standards.
The Spanish people don’t want a government built on a political amnesty and a referendum. Full support for the principled stand of @NunezFeijoo in favour of the rule of law and the integrity of the Spanish constitution. @ppopular #InvestiduraFeijóo
