European Committee of the Regions supports European Democracy Action Plan as part of a “process of creating a new democratic infrastructure”

The European Union needs to create a “new democratic infrastructure” in order to ensure elections are free and fair, improve media pluralism and boost citizens’ engagement, the European Committee of the Regions said on 30 June. In recommendations intended to strengthen democracy, equality, and respect for human rights, municipal and regional leaders emphasised that sub-national governments can play an important role in promoting media literacy, critical thinking and transparency in political campaigning, as well as in supporting citizens’ participation in politics.
