Open Government


Transparency is a cornerstone of a healthy democracy and EU functions on the bedrock principle of transparency, enshrined in Article 10 of the Treaty on European Union. This principle demands open decision-making and accessibility of information, fostering public trust and ensuring democratic accountability. As your representative in the European Parliament, I firmly believe in upholding these values.

In line with the high ethical standards outlined in the European Parliament’s Code of Conduct, I am committed to complete transparency regarding my work and the resources entrusted to me. This includes providing clear and accessible information about my salary, allowances, and any meetings.

“Europe must be open and free for all its citizens regardless of who they are or who they love. It must also remain open and free to inspiration, goods, and people from the rest of the world to ensure growth and innovation. An open and free Europe must ensure an open and free world that respects fundamental rights and an environmentally sustainable future for all.”
