The newly launched EP Newshub has combined 754 MEPs, seven political groups, one president and a smattering of institutional news to create a single unmissable page of constantly updated Parliament news. Read more on what it is and how it works and then visit and enjoy it.
The EP Newshub is a new instant news service from the European Parliament, gathering in one single place all web information published by MEPs, political groups, the president and the Parliament’s news service.
Greek Social-Democrat Anni Podimata, vice-president for communication, said: „The EP Newshub represents for citizens a window wide open on our parliamentary work. This window is one of the innovative tools that will allow members of the Parliament to develop a two-way communication with our citizens and encourage them to establish stronger relations with their representatives.“
Austrian Christian Democrat Othmar Karas, vice-president for communication, said: „It is not only about disseminating information, but also about listening to the concerns and thoughts of people. That’s how we can act best as the voice of over 500 million citizens. Moreover, we show once more that we strive for being the most transparent and open parliament in the world.“
