Labour MEP Miriam Dalli has been named among the top doers in the European Parliament by Politico, who selected one personality from each of the 28 member states,#

POLITICO’s European edition, a joint venture between POLITICO and Axel Springer, unveiled today the POLITICO 28 Class of 2019: the list of doers, disrupters and dreamers who will transform Europe in the upcoming year.


Miriam Dalli is No. 8 of the list of doers. By building alliance among left-leaning and Green parties, the Maltese politician pushed through stiff emissions targets in the European Parliament – overcoming opposition from the assembly’s biggest group, and fierce lobbying from the German car industry.

“The POLITICO 28 is our guide to the people to watch in 2019,” said Stephan Faris, enterprise editor at POLITICO, who led the project. “As usual, our list includes politicians, business leaders, activists and artists selected not for the power of their office but for the way they are shaping their countries or the EU. But this year we’ve done something different: In addition to picking an overall number one, we’ve divided our list into three categories: doers, dreamers and disruptors. Our selection should not be seen as endorsements, but it does reflect who we believe will be shaping the European discussion. We hope our Class of 2019 will spur conversation, and even some dissent.”
The 2019 Class of POLITICO 28 are: Matteo Salvini (Italy)

The doers: Ine Marie Eriksen Søreide (Norway), Pedro Sánchez (Spain), Martin Selmayr (Germany), Heli Tiirmaa-Klaar (Estonia), Yulia Timoshenko (Ukraine), Mark Carney (Canada), Barbara Nowacka (Poland), Miriam Dalli (Malta), Ronald Prins (The Netherlands),

The dreamers: Garance Pineau (France), Niklas Zennström (Sweden), Era Istrefi (Kosovo), Peter Vesterbacka (Finland), Sener Levent (Cyprus), Joana Vasconcelos (Portugal)m Ivan Krastev (Bulgaria), Dominik Feri (Czech Republic), Guðrið Højgaard (Faroe Islands),

The disruptors: Mary Lou McDonald (Ireland), Mattias Tesfaye (Denmark), Jeremy Corbyn (United Kingdom), Eleni Touloupaki (Greece), Herbert Kickl (Austria), Ali Can (Turkey/Germany), Márta Pardavi (Hungary), Mischaël Modrikamen (Belgium), Mihai Sora (Romania)
