It’s time for debate! Leading EU candidates face off – POLITICO

It was a rare opportunity to see all the main candidates from Europe’s main political parties compete in a presidential-style debate to become the next president of the European Commission.

With just over a month until the European Parliament elections, eight politicians gathered in the Dutch city of Maastricht and spent an hour and a half answering questions on key topics including climate change, defense and European democracy.

If you missed it, don’t worry, we’ve picked out the key moments and some of the most heated exchanges. Host Sarah Wheaton is joined by fellow POLITICO editor Nicholas Vinocur and Barbara Moens, chief EU correspondent and co-moderator of the debate. They give us their take on who won, who lost, and how it all happened. Did anyone manage to impress a room full of university students and more than a quarter of a million people watching the debate online?
