- SCOPUL MEU -

Vreau să dau Europa înapoi oamenilor. Vreau o Europă în care oamenii, din toate țările, realizează, împreună, un viitor mai bun. Europa mea este o Europă a visurilor și a realizărilor comune.

- REALIZĂRILE MELE -

De când am devenit Președintele celui mai mare grup politic din Parlamentul European, în 2014, Grupul PPE a fost cea mai unită forță politică a Parlamentului. Datorită acestei unități, multe dintre ideile noastre cheie au devenit lege: am impus noi reguli privind evidența pasagerilor aerieni, pentru a intensifica lupta împotriva terorismului; am inițiat un nou mecanism de suspendare a călătoriilor fără viză, în caz de situații de urgență; și am propus bilete Interrail gratuite pentru toți tinerii de 18 ani, astfel încât să poată descoperi și să experimenteze frumusețea continentului nostru. Propunerea recentă de a recruta 10.000 de ofițerii suplimentari Frontex de frontieră și coastă care să controleze granițele noastre externe a fost, de asemenea, condusă de Grupul nostru. Sub conducerea mea, bazată pe unitatea și forța Grupului PPE, am fost onorat și recunoscător că am fost reales în funcția de Președinte în 2016, cu 98% din voturi, pentru a putea continua să construim o Europă mai bună împreună.

- ORIGINILE MELE -

Inginer de profesie, am înființat două companii de succes, la terminarea studiilor. Ghidat de valorile creștin-democrate, am fost activ în politică de la o vârstă fragedă. Profund înrădăcinat în Bavaria Inferioară rurală, am câștigat primul loc în Parlamentul Bavariei la vârsta de 29 de ani. Astăzi sunt Vicepreședintele CSU din Bavaria, al treilea mare partid din Germania. Locuiesc împreună cu soția mea într-un mic sat din Bavaria Inferioară și activez în diferite organizații catolice laice.

- MANDATUL MEU -

În noiembrie 2018, familia mea politică, PPE, s-a întâlnit în Helsinki pentru a alege unul dintre cei doi candidați ce va duce mai departe viziunea PPE cu privire la Europa. Am avut onoarea de a fi ales, cu o majoritate covârșitoare, drept candidatul PPE pentru Președintele Comisiei Europene.

- PROMISIUNEA MEA -

În calitate de Președinte al Comisiei Europene, voi aduce oamenii împreună pentru o Europă puternică, democratică și sigură.

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.
