> *The newly elected European Parliament will include at least 33 members
> from 7 member states that have pledged their support to free software,
> according to advocacy groups April and the FSFE. The provisional results of
> their campaign show that of these, 17 come from France, 7 from Germany, 3
> from the Netherlands, 2 from Italy, 2 from Spain, 1 from Belgium and 1 from
> Portugal.*
> This year, the campaign to get candidates to pledge their support for free
> software involved France's April, the Italian Assoli, Spain's Hispalinux,
> Latvia's LATA, Slovenia's SOIK and the pan-European FSF and FSFE.
> In signing the pact, candidates promise to support free software and open
> standards in politics, law and administration.
> Free software enthusiasts volunteering for these groups managed to get 162
> of all EP candidates from 16 member states to sign the 'Free Software
> Pact', and contacted many more, says Jeanne Tadeusz, April's public affairs
> officer. "It is crucial that MEPs know and care about free software", the
> group explained when announcing the interim results. "The European
> Parliament is one of the most important actors today in protecting our
> freedoms, show by its battles on ACTA, Net neutrality and software patents."
> In a statement, Karsten Gerloff, president for the Free Software
> Foundation Europe (FSFE) adds: "We rely on these MEPS to make sure that
> Europeans can be in full control of the computers they use. FSFE will be
> happy to support them in this important effort."
