BRUSSELS-At end of this week, citizens of all 28 EU member States will elect 751 members to European Parliament. Almost all of them will come from various National Party lists with numbers determined both by size of country MEP is running in and what share of vote his / her party get. Here's look at some of more interesting candidates running for seat in chamber. Eyes of World were fixed on Magdalena Adamowicz on January 14 as she and her two daughters rushed to hospital in northern Polish city of Gdansk. She had to whisper her final goodbyes to her husband, Pawel Adamowicz. Few Minutes Later, Mayor Of Gdansk For More Than Two Decades Die. He had been stabbed in heart night before while on stage at closing of Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity, biggest such fundraising event in country. His killer, man with long criminal history who had just been released from prison, seized microphone At event and claimed false imprisonment and torture at hands of previous centrist Civic Platform government-Party that Adamowicz had belonged to for most of his career, even if he had been elected as independent last time around. For European elections, it is slain mayor's widow who is attempting to pick up his political mantle. Like him, she is Liberal who speaks favorably of LGBT rights and immigration-issues that put law professor and top candidate for PO in direct opposition to ruling conservative Law and Justice Party that currently dominates political scene in Poland. Viktor Orban, Hungarian Prime Minister and bete noire of many Liberals in Europe, knows exactly to troll his many detractors. One way is to nominate his Justice Minister, Laszlo Trocsanyi, to lead Fidesz list for European Parliament vote. For country that is often in EU crosshairs of rule-of-Law issues, that is quite daring move. What is more, it's rumor that popular support Trocsanyi will get being top of list will likely be used as justification for Orban to propose him as Hungary's next European commissioner. Making matters more delicate, Trocsanyi's Law firm, Nagy & Trocsanyi, represents Hungarian government in almost all important government cases involving legal disputes with European Union. He has, however, suspended his activities for duration of his government service and is likely to do same in BRUSSELS. Meanwhile, beleaguer center-left in Hungary are likely to their electoral cold streak. Top Candidate For Center-Leave Democratic Coalition Is Klara Dobrev, Wife Of Former Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany. Gyurcsany's time at helm of country in 2004-09 was controversial one, with economic struggles and riots in streets of Budapest and other cities after he was caught on tape saying that his Socialist Party had lied to win 2006 Election.

1979-1987

Evolution Of What Is Today European Union From Regional Economic Agreement Among Six Neighboring States In 1951 To Today's Hybrid Intergovernmental And Supranational Organization Of 27 Countries Across European Continent Stands As Unprecedented Phenomenon In Annals Of History. Dynastic Unions for territorial consolidation were long norm in Europe; on few occasions even country-level unions were arrange-Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and Austro-Hungarian Empire were examples. But for such large number of nation-states to cede some of their sovereignty to overarching entity is unique. Although EU is not federation in strict sense, it is far more than free-trade Association such as ASEAN or Mercosur, and it has certain attributes associated with independent nations: its own flag, currency, and law-making abilities, as well as diplomatic representation and Common Foreign and security policy in its dealings with external partners. Thus, inclusion of basic intelligence on EU has been deemed appropriate as separate entity in World Factbook. However, because of EU's special status, this description is place after regular country entries. Following two devastating World Wars in first half of 20th century, number of far-sight European leaders in late 1940s sought response to overwhelming desire for peace and reconciliation on continent. In 1950, French Foreign Minister Robert SCHUMAN proposed pooling production of coal and steel in Western Europe and setting up organization for that purpose that would bring France and Federal Republic of Germany together and would be open to other countries as well. Following Year, European Coal And Steel Community Was Set Up When Six Members-Belgium, France, West Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, And Netherlands-sign Treaty Of Paris. ECSC was so successful that within few years, decision was made to integrate other elements of countries' economies. In 1957, envisioning ever closer Union, Treaties of Rome created European Economic Community and European Atomic Energy Community, and six member states undertook to eliminate trade barriers among themselves by forming Common market. In 1967, institutions of all three communities were formally merged into European Community, creating single Commission, single Council of Ministers, and body known today as European Parliament. Members of European Parliament were initially selected by national Parliaments, but in 1979, first direct elections were undertaken and have been held every five years since. In 1973, first enlargement of EC took place with addition of Denmark, Ireland, and UK. 1980s Saw Further Membership Expansion With Greece Joining In 1981 And Spain And Portugal In 1986. 1992 Treaty Of Maastricht Laid Basis For Further Forms Of Cooperation In Foreign And Defense Policy, In Judicial And Internal Affairs, And In Creation Of Economic And Monetary Union-including Common Currency. This further integration create European Union, at time standing alongside EC.

1989 controversy

It was feared that, after 2009 elections, Jean-Marie Le Pen, far-right MEP from France who had been convicted of Holocaust denial in his home country, might be oldest member, aged 81. In response to this concern, Parliament's rules were changed so that outgoing President or one of outgoing Vice-Presidents would chair first session of Parliament until new President was elect. Green co-head Daniel Cohn-Bendit wants to change rules so that youngest member would chair session, to reflect on future. In event, after election, former Italian Prime Minister Ciriaco De Mita was in fact oldest member, rather than Le Pen.
