Christian Coalition World, the international expression of the Norway-based Kristen Koalisjon Norge (KKN), has agreed to partner with Dr. Ben-Oni Ardelean, the Vice-President of Romania´s Parliament, for the next Elections to the European Parliament which will be held on 23-26 May 2019. A total of 751 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) currently represent some 500 million people from 28 member states. In February 2018, the European Parliament voted to decrease the number of MEPs from 751 to 705, after the United Kingdom withdraws from the European Union on the currently planned schedule.
- KKN is a Euro-sceptic movement. We adamantly oppose Norwegian EU membership, but we recognize the importance of the EU for the 28 member states, and we acknowledge the significance of the development of EU for all of Europe. Vital ideological issues are currently being debated in the EU. When Dr. Ardelean asked me to help with promoting candidates and to get good candicates elected, I accepted the challenge. KKN can accomplish several things because of our strong relationships in the EU states. We look forward to a solid leap forward in the number of Christian, values-based MEPs after the 2019 elections, says Jan-Aage Torp, the Executive Chairman of KKN.
