Juncker's 'state of the union' speech will be broadcast live

The annual 'state of the the union' speech by European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker will be broadcast live by LTV September 13, and you will be able to watch it live online too.

The speech will be shown on LTV1 and simultaneously at the Re:Play online service at 09:50 Riga time.

You will be able to watch it HERE.

The state of the union speech began as an attempt to introduce a U.S.-style summary of current affairs to the EU audience, but has so far failed to ignite the public imagination in the same way. 

If you would like to read or see last year's speech for the purposes of comparison with Wednesday's sequel, you can do so HERE
