Working well with 'pro-EU' Meloni says von der Leyen

Working well with 'pro-EU' Meloni says von der Leyen

Don't want to work with other ECR members, have other gay stance

Meloni, l 'Ucraina parte della nostra casa e la difenderemo - ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Ursula von der Leyen said Thursday she was working very well with Premier Giorgia Meloni whom she described as pro-European and anti-Putin.
    She cautioned however that she would not like to work with other members of Meloni's Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) caucus which includes Spain's Vox and Poland's Law and Justice parties.
    Von der Leyen, launching her bid to be re-elected Euroepan Commission President for the centre-right European People's Party (EPP), added that she had a "completely different approach" from Meloni's regarding gay rights, with Italy being the only western European country to have voted against a a declaration for the promotion of European policies in favour of LGBTQIA+ communities presented by the Belgian presidency to the EU member states earlier this week, and Meloni having fulminated in favour of the traditional family and against gender theory in schools and surrogacy at Vox's Madrid summit of rightwing parties Sunday.
    "I'm working very well with Giorgia Meloni, like all the heads of State and government, that is my job," former German defence minister von der Leyen told a Eurovision debate of the top candidates to head the EC after the June 8-9 European elections.
    As for future alliances in Europe, she said "we'll see who are the pro-Europeans, and she (Meloni) clearly is, and the anti-Putins, and she has been very clear on this, and the pro rule of law parties".
    Von der Leyen, who has worked with Meloni on EU migrant deals with Tunisia and Egypt, added: "to those who respect these criteria, we offer to work together".
    She added that Marine Le Pen's National Rally and Alternative for Germany, who are in another rightwing caucus although AdF is set to be kicked out after a top official said not all the SS were bad people, wanted to "destroy Europe".
