Here is a simple pledge for everyone who is running for the European Parliament in 2014.

I hereby pledge that…

1. I will only campaign on  EU issues.

2. I will always explain why a problem needs to be solved at EU level and how it can be done.

3. I will explain the role of the European Parliament in the  institutional context of the EU.

4. I will reply honestly to citizens about the possibilities and limitations of being an MEP.
