- MINU EESMÄRK -

Ma tahan Euroopa anda inimestele tagasi. Ma tahan Euroopat, kus kõigi riikide inimesed kujundavad koos parema tuleviku. Minu Euroopa on ühiste unistuste ja ühiste saavutuste Euroopa.

- MINU TAUST -

Alates sellest, kui ma sain 2014. aastal Euroopa Parlamendi suurima poliitilise fraktsiooni esimeheks, on meie EPP fraktsioon olnud parlamendi kõige ühtsem poliitiline jõud. Tänu sellele ühtsusele on paljud meie peamised ideed vormunud seadusteks: oleme läbi surunud olulisi uusi reegleid lennureisijate tausta kohta, et tõhustada terrorismivastast võitlust; algatasime uue mehhanismi viisavaba reisimise peatamiseks hädaolukordades ning pakkusime tasuta Interraili pileteid kõigile 18-aastastele, et nad saaksid avastada ja kogeda meie maailmajao ilu. Hiljutist ettepanekut värvata juurde 10 000 Frontexi piiri- ja rannikuvalvurit meie ühiste piiride kaitsmiseks juhtis samuti meie fraktsioon. Kuna EPP fraktsioon on minu juhtimise all olnud ühtne ja tugev, valiti mind 2016. aastal 98-protsendilise häälteenamusega uuesti esimeheks. See on mulle suur au ja olen selle eest väga tänulik. Nüüd võime koos parema Euroopa ehitamist jätkata.

- MINU PÄRITOLU -

Olen ametilt insener ja asutasin pärast õpinguid kaks edukat ettevõtet. Juhituna kristliku demokraatia väärtustest olen juba varajasest east alates poliitikas tegev olnud. Olen pärit Alam-Baieri maapiirkonnast ja 29-aastasena sai minust Baieri parlamendi liige. Praegu olen Baierimaa CSU, Saksamaa suuruselt kolmanda partei asepresident. Elan koos abikaasaga väikeses Alam-Baieri külas ja olen aktiivne mitmes katoliiklikus organisatsioonis.

- MINU MANDAAT -

aasta novembris kogunes mu EPP poliitiline perekond Helsingisse, et valida üks kahest kandidaadist, kes hakkaks EPP kujutlust Euroopast edasi viima. Mind valiti suure häälteenamusega EPP Euroopa Komisjoni presidendi põhikandidaadiks.

- MINU LUBADUS -

MINU LUBADUS. Euroopa Komisjoni presidendina toon ma inimesed kokku tugeva, demokraatliku ja turvalise Euroopa nimel.

What are the crucial factors that have shaped my personal journey?

FAMILY: Family is the most important school of life. As the second oldest of three sons, I practiced assertiveness and teamwork from my earliest days. In 2002, I married my wife. My family is my ultimate retreat.

HOMELAND: While I enjoy working at the European level and thinking in a European manner, I am deeply rooted to my homeland. In July 1972, I was born in the district of Landshut. After kindergarten in Pfeffenhausen, I was enrolled in school in Wildenberg in the district of Kelheim. My educational path led me from the elementary school in Wildenberg via the middle school in Siegenburg and the secondary school in Rottenburg to the specialised secondary school in Landshut. During my voluntary work at the KLJB (Catholic Rural Youth Movement) – as a trumpet player in the church brass instrument group – and my contribution to village life, I gained vital life experience. For me, my home is my identity.

MUSIC: From my second year of secondary school, I have played guitar. Together with my friends I formed a band, in which I was involved in for almost twenty years. Our gigs at dancing events, festivals and carnival balls meant so much to me, and provided a wonderful life experience.

FAITH: Weekly church attendance is no duty for me; rather it is an enriching and spiritual experience. Christianity enriches my life, inducing a sense of continuity and stability in an increasingly fast-paced world. In the past, I regularly spent time in monasteries to foster spirituality and gain renewed momentum.

Establishing a company, being my own boss – I was already dreaming of this during my Physical Technology studies at the Munich University of Applied Sciences. Environmental protection was, and still is, central to me. The study field of Technical Environmental Protection made it possible to pursue my interest in future technologies. This niche between biology, environmental protection and business administration continuously fascinates me.

After graduation in 1996, I founded my first company together with a partner; some years later a second one followed, in the field of environmental and quality management as well as work safety.

Today, both companies are no longer in my possession. I fully concentrate on my political tasks.

Since 2004, I represent, as a Member of the European Parliament, the voice of the 1.2 million inhabitants of Lower Bavaria. Personally, practicing politics at the European level represents the ultimate platform.

Unsalaried political work provided a practical political base: at the age of 16, I became politically active. From 2003 to 2007, I had the pleasure to lead and shape the Junge Union (Young Christian Democrats) as Regional Chairman – the first Lower Bavarian in history.

At the age of 29, I became the youngest member of the State Parliament of Bavaria – first as a substitute, then, in 2003, directly via the CSU list in Lower Bavaria. Subsequently, I became a Member of the European Parliament.
