happy to see so many parties united today

National election in Sept. - EU Election will be in the plan starting afterwards

starting with the PPEU election campaign
programm building has started

Looking at the maybe new election for Parliament in October

Eager to participate into the CEEP

try to run in any elections in Greece (if possible)

don't know yet when there will be a national programme
have several volunteers for working groups, looking forward to begin
will have regional elections in September, until then probably program and even candidate list won't be in focus unfortunately
note: should there be not only common program, but also common strategy after the elections, concerning negotiations etc.?

have local elections atm buzy, they also said they have no man power for EU election.

2 - Some element of the result of the consultation of the national PP and discussion about the decision making process (10 mn)

Decision making process will needs to be written down until the next meeting
Alexander Spies will prepare a proposal, ThomasG will assist not finalised yet
take into account physical meetings on the process

Set deadline:
Proposal 3: the parties should be asked for the deadline they need to translate and adopt it, based on this a decision will be made.
Tony + An Antigone ⇒ ?

3 - Define all the actions to have until the common programme is adopted (45 mn)

Result : retroplanning

Action to have during the first meeting :

Set a list of the action with name of responsible in front of each action

Monitor the previous CEEP for obsolete or to be amended items still in work, see below.
Each party should to find out if they stick to it in basis.

Decision making process needs to be established
Documentation, working tools, quorum 100% Consensus is needed, if one party objects, an item can either be amended or be striken off

Proposal: using discourse mainly for asynchronous work +1 +1
advantages: easier than mailing lists (but can be used like it for those who want)

Here :
English language version etc. will be prepared very soon.
