European election candidates go head to head in televised stand-off


Five hopefuls are set to pitch their ideas for the future of the European Union in the last showdown before voters head to the polls on June 6-9.


Lead candidates vying for the European Commission presidency will tackle key issues including migration, climate, defence and the economy in a live debate organised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and broadcast live on Euronews.

The debate will kick off at 15.00 CET, with an audience of 900 expected to gather in the European Parliament’s iconic hemicycle in Brussels. For the first time, voters from capitals across the EU will directly pose their questions to candidates.
