NRW-CDU not nominated Brok for European elections

Hardly explains the EU as in words such as Elmar Brok. But now, his career in Brussels seems to be finished. The NRW-CDU not nominated him, surprisingly for the European elections. However, Brok has a back door.

The Board of Directors of the NRW-CDU is not the European politician Elmar Brok for the next European elections. The 37 members of the national Executive had voted by a majority against him, he said. Since the NRW Minister Armin Laschet had supported the candidacy of Brok, is likely to be due to fall as a defeat for Laschet scored.

Give up Brok, does not want to, however: "I reserve the right, whether I'm running on the country's Assembly of delegates," said the 72-Year-old. The vote was only a proposal. A further comment Brok rejected.

Senior MEP

Brok since 1980 in the European Parliament, and thus its longest-serving member of Parliament. He is currently a Brexit officer of the EPP group in the European Parliament.

For decades, he is a sought-after interview partner not only of the Germans but also the British media. He commented on almost every important development in European politics. "Europe is still working on a front line, there is little Routine and always a lot of New. And that is still fun," said Brok, five years ago.
