Aspiring MEPs should start training now

It has been confirmed by the English Council that the English Regions will select their European Parliamentary candidates between June and November next year, with the intention of giving candidates a clear eighteen months to campaign once selected.

The English Candidates Committee is encouraging anyone thinking of applying to seek approval, if required, as early as possible to prevent any repeat of the last European selection, when some applicants were going through the approval process at the same time as interviews were taking place.

Those on the Westminster approved list not already approved for Europe will require successful completion of a “policy conversion interview”, and once again, should apply as quickly as possible in order to avoid possible delay and inconvenience later.

The “policy conversion interview” sounds like it involves a dark room and an bright lamp, but you can find out more by e-mailing the English candidates office on [email protected]

  • So they have managed to find where they put the European conversion module or are they writting a new one? I heard there is a backlog of candidates wanting to do the European conversion but RCC’s were having problems finding what had happened to the module.
