EU PARLIAMENT: SCHULZ, "I HOPE THE POPE WILL ACCEPT OUR INVITATION" TO STRASBOURG

(Sir Europe – Brussels) – "I would be very glad if the Pope accepted to come and visit the European Parliament". Just re-elected president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz meets the press and, at a specific question, he answers that, "during my recent visit to Rome, I had invited Pope Francis" to come and speak at Strasbourg’s HQ. Now, re-elected at the helm of the European Parliament (it is the first time ever an outgoing president is re-elected), Schulz confirms he still hopes so. Then, he states: "The wide majority that made it possible to re-elect me could be the base of the majority to appoint Jean-Claude Juncker" at the helm of the EU Executive. But, to do this, Juncker should "submit a programme" that is supported by pro-European parties and MEPs. Speaking of economy: "Flexibility is a must. It was talked about by Italian Prime Minister Renzi at the European Council". Shulz thinks Renzi will insist on this during his speech in Parliament, due to take place in Strasbourg tomorrow, in the afternoon.
