Centre-right lead EU candidate calls for broad coalition

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The centre-right German candidate to head the next European Union’s executive called for a broad alliance of pro-EU forces among socialists, liberals and greens after a continent-wide vote on Sunday.

“We are facing a shrinking centre,” Manfred Weber said. “When I look to the figures, I don’t see a majority against the liberals, I don’t see a majority against the socialists, I don’t see a majority against the European People’s Party.”

“So what I would ask us to do to is to join our forces to work together from now.”
