My Europe is…

…flexible, modern, open to the rest of the worl, democratic, tolerant, multicultural and free.

If you could, what would be the first thing you would change in Europe?

I would solve the problem of the democratic deficit of the EU, enabling citizens to directly choose the President of the Comission, and reinforcing the power of the European Parliament.
