European Parliament President Roberta Metsola has sent a letter to Elon Musk asking him to testify before the EU legislature, her spokesperson said Monday (December 19th).

The European Parliament does not have the power to compel the richest man in the world to appear before it, and his response was not immediately known.

Elon Musk, chief executive of electric car maker Tesla, has caused upheaval and controversy since he bought the social network Twitter in October for 44 billion dollars.

After firing half of the company's staff, reinstating former US President Donald Trump's account, scrapping a policy against Covid-19 misinformation, banning - then reinstating - some journalists and briefly blocking references to rival platforms on Twitter, it has caught the attention of policymakers in the United States and Europe.

57% of voters in favor of his departure

The European Commission has warned Elon Musk he faces


from the EU because of the threat he poses to media freedom.

On Monday, he organized a Twitter poll to find out if he should remain CEO of this company.

A total of 57.5% of users answered "yes" to his departure.

Twitter's share price has plunged by a third since it bought the platform.
