Laudation (extract)

Speaker Leo Tindeman on the laureate:

‘After decades of hate and resistance a directly chosen parliament will deliberate on our collective future and define the political guidelines. From a historical point of view the elections are a turning point. […] Emilio Colombo, wherever possible, directed all his strength and striving to delivering an intelligent contribution to the integration of Europe.’
