European Union - For European renewal - Macron

Brexit is the symbol of Europe's crisis: Macron outlines vision for EU's future

Some officials said that while becoming Europe's main leader was undoubtedly appealing for Macron, his immediate aim was to set out reforms that might help him repeat his success in France's 2017 presidential election, when he ran on a pro-European agenda.

Pledging to fight "tirelessly" for the EU, he writes: "We have shown that what we were told was unattainable, the creation of a European defence capability and the protection of social rights, was in fact possible".

In the open letter to Europeans, which will be published on Tuesday by newspapers in the 28 EU countries including Great Britain, the 41-year-old president advocated renewal ahead of the May 26 European elections.

The European Commission earlier this year urged advertising firms and United States internet giants like Facebook to intensify the fight against disinformation campaigns from suspects like Russian Federation, ahead of the May elections.

Republique En Marche (Republic on the Move) is campaigning with European Parliament's liberal bloc, with a platform that frames the stakes much like Macron's op-ed: "The choice is the following: We update the European Union to develop individual freedom, prosperity and stability, or we go back to the times of nationalism and growing authoritarianism".

"Macron is all alone on the European stage".

"This could mark the beginning of a serious European debate", Orban said in a statement sent to Reuters by email.

If Orban is endorsing Macron's proposals, it is because Macron's police-state proposals are compatible with the far-right policies pursued by capitalist regimes across Eastern Europe.

It's worth pointing out, though, that Jenner had an enormous leg up when it came to building, promoting, and scaling her company. The magazine lauded Jenner as " self-made " because she didn't inherit any money from her family, but built her own businesses.

He also suggested a ban on funding European political parties by foreign powers, a review of the Schengen system and creating a common border force and European asylum office.

"A European agency for the protection of democracies would provide European experts to each member state to protect its electoral process against cyber-attacks and manipulation", he suggested.

Macron also advocates a protectionist policy, proposing "the adoption of European preference in strategic industries and our public procurement, as our American and Chinese competitors do".

Emmanuel Macron has called on the "citizens of Europe" to help build a more united European Union and to defeat threats that mean the bloc "has never been so much in danger".

Financing European political parties from overseas should also be banned, while rules should be agreed on banning "hateful and violent speeches from the internet", he added.

Instead, he called on people to support parties that want to strengthen Europe.

France last month saw its most serious diplomatic dispute with Italy since World War II.
