- MANS MĒRĶIS -

Es vēlos, lai Eiropa atgrieztos pie cilvēkiem. Es vēlos Eiropu, kurā visu valstu iedzīvotāji kopīgi veidotu labāku nākotni. Mana Eiropa ir kopēju sapņu un kopīgu sasniegumu Eiropa.

- MANA PIEREDZE UN SASNIEGUMI -

Kopš es kļuvu par Eiropas Parlamenta lielākās politiskās grupas priekšsēdētāju 2014. gadā, mūsu PPE grupa ir bijusi Parlamenta vienotākais politiskais spēks. Pateicoties šai vienotībai, daudzas no mūsu galvenajām idejām ir ieguvušas likuma spēku: mēs esam ieviesuši jaunus svarīgus noteikumus par gaisa pasažieru reģistriem, lai pastiprinātu cīņu pret terorismu; mēs ieviesām jaunu mehānismu, lai ārkārtas situācijās apturētu bezvīzu ceļošanas režīmu, un mēs piedāvājām bezmaksas vilcienu biļetes visiem 18 gadīgajiem jauniešiem, lai viņi varētu atklāt un apjaust mūsu kontinenta skaistumu. Mūsu grupa iesniedza arī neseno priekšlikumu pieņemt darbā 10 000 Frontex robežas un piekrastes apsardzes darbiniekus, lai aizsargātu mūsu kopējās robežas. Es biju pagodināts un pateicīgs, ka, novērtējot manis vadītās PPE grupas vienotību un spēku, 2016. gadā mani ar 98 % balsu vēlreiz ievēlēja par tās priekšsēdētāju, lai mēs kopīgi varētu turpināt veidot labāku Eiropu.

- MANAS SAKNES -

Pēc profesijas esmu inženieris un pēc studiju pabeigšanas esmu nodibinājis divus veiksmīgus uzņēmumus. Par pamatu ņemot kristīgās demokrātijas vērtības, jau no jaunības gadiem esmu aktīvi darbojies politikā. Tā kā esmu dziļi iesakņojies Lejasbavārijas zemē, 29 gadu vecumā pirmo reizi ieguvu mandātu Bavārijas parlamentā. Šobrīd es esmu Bavārijas CSU priekšsēdētāja vietnieks, kas ir trešā lielākā partija Vācijā. Kopā ar sievu es dzīvoju mazā ciematā Lejasbavārijā, un esmu aktīvs dalībnieks vairākās katoļu draudžu organizācijās.

- MANS MANDĀTS -

2018. gada novembrī mana PPE politiskā ģimene pulcējās Helsinkos, lai izvēlētos vienu no diviem kandidātiem, kas turpinātu īstenot PPE redzējumu attiecībā uz Eiropu. Man bija tas gods ar lielu balsu vairākumu tikt izvēlētam par PPE vadošo kandidātu Eiropas Komisijas priekšsēdētāja amatam.

- MANS SOLĪJUMS -

Kā Eiropas Komisijas priekšsēdētājs es pulcināšu cilvēkus, lai izveidotu spēcīgu, demokrātisku un drošu Eiropu.

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.
