Guy Verhofstadt and Olli Rehn are to 'stand united' as they campaign for a reform of the EU that goes 'deeper and broader' than ever before.
Liberals value personal freedom highly, including in party politics. That is why we have a reputation for fierce internal debates and discussions, but on Saturday 1 February, we decided to do something different. At a special electoral meeting in Brussels, 80 per cent of the ALDE party's delegates endorsed a joint ticket with Olli Rehn and myself to lead the Liberals into the European elections, with myself as the candidate for commission president while Olli Rehn was appointed candidate for another senior post, in the economic or foreign policy field.

The European Union suspended sanctions on eight of Zimbabwe's most powerful military and political figures on Monday (17 February) and is expected to pave the way for the EU to resume channelling development aid directly to the Zimbabwe government as of 2015.
The 28-nation EU, which imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe in 2002 in protest at human rights abuses and violations of democracy under Mugabe, has gradually eased sanctions over the last few years to encourage political reform. Following last year's disputed elections, EU government representatives, who were meeting in Brussels, decided however to keep sanctions on President Robert Mugabe and his wife, highlighting a cautious easing of policy.

The European commissioner for maritime affairs, Maria Damanaki, has called at the World Ocean Summit for businesses to see the oceans as an economic resource but has warned against a “frenzied gold rush”.
The oceans' vast amount of untapped energy and resources hold great potential for economic development, which can in turn create jobs both at sea and on land, the Commission says.
The EU executive estimates that ocean resources account for some 5.4 million jobs within the EU and some €500 billion a year of economic turnover.

Scientists from European and African academic associations meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, last week (27 February) joined forces in calling for the use of biotechnology in African agriculture.
The scientists, from the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC) and the European Academies Science Advisory Council (EASAC), said that agricultural biotechnology could contribute to sustainable agriculture and to providing nutrition to people across the continent. Many of the world’s most food insecure regions are in Africa.
The scientists called for increasing the amount of African-led research into agricultural biotechnology, according to a statement issued after the meeting.
