Jean Lambert London's Green MEP

President Barroso seeks Greens’ support for a second term amid scepticism over his environmental ambition

José Manuel Barroso will present his programme for a further term as EU Commission President and face questions from Greens/EFA MEPs at their group meeting this afternoon. This meeting is open to accredited journalists.

It can also be followed via live webstream at:

TODAY, Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 16.30-18.30
Room A1 G2, ASP Building, European Parliament, Brussels

Jean Lambert MEP commented:

“Commission President Barroso’s proposed programme for the next five years contains green aspirations but lacks true green vision. His track record – notably on the 2005 reform of the Lisbon Agenda, where he downplayed the importance of the environment – disqualifies him as a credible contender to deliver the green modernisation that Europe requires.”
