As political parties and candidates seeking office, we will not aid and abet those who seek to undermine democracy.
In particular, by signing this pledge we are:
En tant que partis politiques et candidats, nous nous engageons à ne pas aider et encourager ceux qui cherchent à s'ingérer dans nos démocraties.
En signant cette charte, nous nous engageons à:
Als politische Parteien und Kandidatinnen und Kandidaten, die sich um ein Mandat bei den Europawahlen bewerben, werden wir diejenigen, die die Demokratie untergraben wollen, nicht unterstützen.
Mit der Unterzeichnung dieser Selbstverpflichtung erklären wir:
The European elections to be held in May will see 350 million EU voters headed to the polls. But they may not be the only ones to have their say – foreign powers will also want to influence the outcome. European institutions, national governments, electoral commissions, and intelligence services have mobilized to varying degrees to counter these threats. Yet, not enough has been done.
Political parties and their candidates are on the front lines of democracy and election integrity. That is why the members of the TCEI are calling on all democratic parties – both pan-European and national – as well as candidates themselves, to commit to take no action to aid and abet those who seek to undermine our democracies.
The Transatlantic Commission on Election Integrity is a transatlantic, bi-partisan group of political, tech, business and media leaders that seeks to foster a more collective approach to preventing the next wave of foreign election interference.
The Commission’s work raises awareness of the risks, develops new technology tools, and identifies weaknesses and remedies in the policy response across Europe and the USA, including front-line states such as Ukraine.
Anyone that is or intends to run as a candidate for the European Parliament elections in May 2019 may take the pledge.Download social media kit
