Vote on Lagarde’s nomination for ECB President

Foreign electoral interference and disinformation

The continued threat of electoral interference from foreign state and non-state actors will be considered again next week by MEPs.

The ECR Group has contributed extensively to the discussion around countering propaganda and disinformation at the European level, holding the position of Standing Rapporteur on Strategic Communications in the last term and spearheading two reports adopted adopted by the Parliament.
