Doru Peter Frantescu, CEO and co-Founder of VoteWatch Europe, was mentioned by a recent Politico report as one of the most influential players in the context of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU. Since the first ever Romanian Presidency, which began on January 1st, is expected to cope with a big number of challenges for the EU: Brexit, the approaching European elections and the approval of the next multiannual financial framework, the practitioners mentioned in the report are expected to have a word to say in the “changing and treacherous political and diplomatic landscape” over the next 6 months. The same study says that “VoteWatch will be one of the go-to sources to assess MEPs’ voting records and policy choices in the last five years, ahead of the 2019 European election”.
