Joachim Zeller

I´m Joachim Zeller, born in Upper-Silesia (Poland) and grown up in the Eastern part of the then divided Germany. Having experienced decades of suppression and lack of freedom, I decided to participate and shape politics immediately after the wall came down. As district mayor of Berlin-Center I learnt about the challenges which European legislation can entail at local and regional level and now I try to address them as Member of the Regional Affairs Committee. But I’m also convinced that a peaceful and united Europe brings major benefits to its citizens, especially for the people of the former communist countries.
