MEP Rasa Juknevičienė has been selected to the European Parliament’s Special Committee on Foreign Interference in all Democratic Processes in the EU, including Disinformation, as the Deputy Coordinator of the delegated members of the EPP group. Coordinators from the political groups not only coordinate the work of the members of the committee but also formulate key provisions in this area. “We will deal with sensitive issues in the committee, so we will need a lot of consultations not only with each other but also with other political groups,” said JUKNEVIČIENĖ. This special committee is tasked with examining in depth whether foreign interference may have violated or circumvented the essential rules for democratic elections. The EPP strongly supports the EU’s efforts to combat disinformation. The term of office of the special committee is twelve months. Later, it can be extended. The committee consists of 33 MEPs.
