Exchange of views with Hong Kong protest leader Joshua Wong

Parliament’s Human Rights Committee will host a debate via. video link with Joshua Wong, Secretary-General of the Demosisto Party and one of the leading figures of the Hong Kong protests. The ECR has congratulated the democracy movement on its overwhelming success in the recent district elections, where an unprecedented turnout of voters endorsed their programme. We urge the Chinese government in Beijing in accordance with the status of “one country, two systems” to fully respect the outcome of the elections and to respond positively to the clearly expressed views of the people of Hong Kong.

ECR Conference on the Child Guarantee

ECR MEPs on the Employment Committee are organising a conference on the Child Guarantee which will include representatives of the Polish Government as well as NGO experts from Poland, Germany and Slovakia.
