Political power inside the European Union is no longer going to be easily stitched up between the two big blocks of centre left and centre right.
After last month’s European parliamentary election, Europe's Green party will wield significant influence in the next round of EU deal making.
Hardtalk speaks to the Green candidate for Commission President, Dutch MEP Bas Eickhout, and asks him how much the Greens are prepared to compromise.

For the second of the joint Bruegel-FT Spitzenkandidaten series we were joined by Bas Eickhout, the lead candidate for the European Elections of The European Green Party.
This event is a part of a series of talks and debates with Europe’s Spitzenkandidaten and political leaders. Journalists from the FT, along with Bruegel’s Director or a Senior Fellow, will explore and challenge the main political parties’ policies for the future of the continent in front of an invited audience. The events will be livestreamed on the Bruegel website. For more events, see here: http://bruegel.org/europe2019/
