ANNEX

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND ABSENCE OF CONFLICT OF INTERESTS

I, the undersigned, ...................................., declare that I have taken note of Article 6(3) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1141/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the statute and funding of European political parties and European political foundations and will exercise my functions as Director of the Authority on European political parties and European political foundations (‘the Authority’) fully independently and in full compliance with the rules of that Regulation. When acting on behalf of the Authority, I will neither seek nor take instructions from any institution or government, or from any other body, office or agency. I will refrain from any act which is incompatible with the nature of my duties.

I declare that, to the best of my knowledge, I am not in a situation of conflict of interests. A conflict of interests exists where the impartial and objective exercise of the functions of Director of the Authority is compromised for reasons involving family, personal life, political, national, philosophical or religious affinity, economic interest or any other shared interest with a recipient of funding under Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1141/2014. In particular, I declare that I am not a member of the European Parliament, I do not hold any electoral mandate and I am not, and never have been, an employee of a European political party or of a European political foundation.

Done at […],

[DATE + SIGNATURE of the Director designate]
