LeipzigElects - page 2

In 2019, Leipzig elects all 70 members of the City Council (Stadtrat) and the four Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from Saxony. This election is not just one more boring election, but one that can define the fate of Leipzig and Europe. The Leipzig Glocal will provide exclusive interviews with candidates. It will follow up on the results and also cover the state elections later in the year.
