By Anni Podimata MEP, Vice-President of the European Parliament

If the EU is to have a future we need to bring back the citizens to the forefront. With more and of better quality democracy, with more social justice, with the protection of social cohesion and by combating inequalities of any kind, and defending the acquis communautaire at all levels - the social, the environmental and not only the fiscal. 

This means growth friendly consolidation in practice - and not only in words - and adjustment programmes that respect and do not dismantle social rights, that promote the competitive advantages and preserve the environmental acquis. 

Ensuring this balance in every Member State - including those under adjustment programmes - is the only way to regain the trust of the citizens and to guarantee the future of the EU. #thesouthintalk
