The countdown is under way to unveil the 2024 class of the European Young Leaders (EYL40). Motivated by the urgent need to tackle the increasing disconnect between citizens and policymakers, and to rebuild the trust that is vital to democracies, Friends of Europe launched the EYL40 leadership programme in 2012. The EYL40 Class of 2024 will be unveiled on 22 January.
European Parliament President Roberta Metsola is expected to announce the launch on Wednesday of the procedure for the waiver of the immunity of Greek MEPs Eva Kaili and Maria Spyraki.
The announcement during a Plenary of the European Parliament on Wednesday follows a request by the European Public Prosecutor's Office.
