Description

As announced by President Jean-Claude Juncker in his 2018 State of the Union Address, the Commission has proposed new measures to secure free and fair elections and counter terrorism – offline and online. The measures include new rules to get terrorist content off the web within 1 hour and a reinforced European Public Prosecutor's Office to fight cross-border terrorism. The Commission is also taking action to protect free and fair European elections from manipulation by third countries or private interests, and to pool resources and expertise in cybersecurity technology.

President Jean-Claude Juncker said: "Leadership is what we need now. This is notably the case when it comes to completing our Security Union. Europeans rightly expect their Union to keep them safe."
