Invändning enligt artikel 111.3: Klassificering, märkning och förpackning av ämnen och blandningar – titandioxid (B9-0071/2020) EN  

Given the scale of health hazards potentially caused by carcinogenic nature of the titanium dioxide, I am of the opinion for more scientific research helping to dispel existing fears. Until then, I support the cautious position of the Commission. Therefore, I vote against the withdrawal of its regulation.

Gemensam laddare för mobil radioutrustning (RC-B9-0070/2020, B9-0070/2020, B9-0072/2020, B9-0074/2020, B9-0075/2020, B9-0076/2020, B9-0085/2020) EN  

I express my strong support for the EU's regulatory action to reduce electronic waste and to empower consumers to make sustainable choices. With this resolution, we can reach the goal of standard for a common charger for mobile radio equipment to be adopted as a matter of urgency in order to avoid further internal market fragmentation.

Lönegap mellan kvinnor och män (B9-0069/2020, B9-0073/2020, B9-0083/2020, B9-0084/2020) EN  

I very much welcome policies that promote the employment of women and their financial independence, and in particular policies that promote the integration of women from marginalised groups into the labour market. I see these actions as benefiting our society and economy. Therefore, I support an integrated approach in all efforts to close the gender pay gap and to promote gender equality.

Avtalet om Förenade konungariket Storbritannien och Nordirlands utträde ur Europeiska unionen och Europeiska atomenergigemenskapen (A9-0004/2020 - Guy Verhofstadt) EN  

The withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a sad and regrettable moment for the European Union and for our integration process. However, we can only respect the sovereign decision of the British people and provide for a withdrawal agreement that organises the separation with the less harm possible for both parties. Therefore, I put my vote ‘yes’ on this recommendation to uphold and reaffirm the decision of British nation.

Situationen i Venezuela efter det olagliga valet av nationalförsamlingens nya talman och presidium (parlamentarisk kupp) (B9-0051/2020, B9-0052/2020, B9-0053/2020, RC-B9-0048/2020, B9-0048/2020, B9-0049/2020, B9-0050/2020) EN  

Obstruction of democratic procedures in the National Assembly of Venezuela is intolerable. With this resolution, the European Parliament once again calls for peaceful and sustainable solution of the crisis and tasks the European External Action Service to enact a full European Union’s support and to put continuous efforts in finding much needed solutions for the benefit of Venezuelan people

Pågående utfrågningar inom ramen för artikel 7.1 i EU-fördraget om Polen och Ungern (B9-0032/2020) EN  

Since triggering of Article 7(1) of the Treaty on European Union, no tangible results and improvements in both countries’ concerned adherence to the fundamental principles and values of the EU have been achieved. I express my deep concern regarding the tendencies in question and reiterate the importance of objective, fact-based and transparent hearings to be held in accordance with the principle of sincere cooperation enshrined in Article 4(3) of the Treaty on European Union.

COP15 för konventionen om biologisk mångfald - (Kunming 2020) (B9-0035/2020) EN  

. ‒ Given the scale of the human-induced climate change and the loss of biodiversity, I welcome the progress on a comprehensive and participatory process to develop a post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework made at COP14. Simultaneously, I stress the utmost importance to design the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030, which would address a new global goal to reverse the biodiversity loss curve by 2030 in order to put nature on the path to regeneration for the benefit of all citizens.

Europeiska ombudsmannens verksamhet 2018 (A9-0032/2019 - Peter Jahr) EN  

I express the appreciation of the productive work of the European Ombudsman and her constructive efforts to influence change in the EU institutions, particularly improving their performance on application of strict moral and ethical rules and standards. I also thank her for fruitful dialogue with the Parliament’s Petition Committee. I hope for similar energy and initiative in her second term as the Ombudsmen, on which I congratulate her.
