>European Parliament: Czech Civic Democrats’ Northern exposure
>A report by Czech Civic Democrat MEP Hyněk Fajmon in the right-wing house magazine CEVRO bemoans the election of French Gaullist Joseph Daul as chair of the EPP faction (‘markedly anti-liberal, anti-American and protectionist’) and his party’s failure to gain a vice chairmanship complaining of an ‘…agreement between the founding EU6 members with the Southern wing and the Austrians, Romanians and Hungarians. We were part of the minority Northern coalition, which was this time outvoted. The Poles ended like us’. The Civic Democrats clearly still have a yen to see the EPP break up.
