Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
First Polish expat running for the European Parliament

A Pole will be running for the European Parliament from Belgium. A first in the history of Poland's elections to the EP. 

The candidate is 26-year old Bartosz Lech and he will be 4th on the Ecolo (Greens) list in French-speaking Belgium. The Greens have just informed me of this.

European regulations allow any EU citizen to run for the EP from any member state they are living in, irrespective of their nationality. Some have taken advantage of the opportunity: the former Finnish race car driver Ari Vatanen is representing France in the EP.
