On the basis,
- of a commitment for a Europe that is more and more politically integrated, and of the construction of a democratic Union that is free and united,
- of a joint will to construct a politically clear vision for a common future with the final goal of creating a political Europe that shall also be a “Europe based on Solidarity”,
- of the essential support of the European institutions as the key instrument for shaping the future of the European Union,
- of a plan for a peaceful and prosperous Europe, founded on values of peace, freedom, democracy, solidarity and education,
we establish the European Democratic Party.
By this agreement, the political parties of the countries, of the historical nations and of the regions of the European Union that share the common values and the principles indicated in this preface, make up “the European Democratic Party (EDP)”.
