European United Left/Nordic Green Left Group of MEP’s
Gabi Zimmer takes over as Chair of the European Left parliamentary group, succeeding Lothar Bisky as leader of the European United Left-Nordic Green Left group. Lothar Bisky resigned as group leader last week for health reasons. Zimmer says she would campaign for a referendum on the fiscal compact treaty which requires participating countries to implement tough economic discipline.
