Οι βουλευτές μπορούν να υποβάλουν γραπτή αιτιολόγηση της ψήφου τους στην ολομέλεια. Άρθρο 194 του Κανονισμού

Σχέδιο διορθωτικού προϋπολογισμού αριθ. 2/2020: Παροχή στήριξης έκτακτης ανάγκης στα κράτη μέλη και περαιτέρω ενίσχυση του μηχανισμού πολιτικής προστασίας της Ένωσης/rescEU για την αντιμετώπιση της έξαρσης της νόσου COVID-19 EN

I voted in favour of this amendment to the EU Budget for 2020 as I believe that the Emergency Support Instrument and the Union Civil Protection Mechanism need to be financially reinforced to better manage the coordination among Member States to face the COVID-19 emergency. Our Union can get through this hard period if its citizens can benefit from the solidarity and the collaboration among Member States.

. ‒ I support the new measures on the use of the European Structural and Investments Funds as I deem that an exceptional situation like the one we are experiencing needs a strong and prompt reaction. This exceptional flexibility (including the possibility of 100% co-financing of European projects from the EU budget) will allow Member States to use the Cohesion Funds to cope with the COVID-19 crisis in a more efficient way and with less administrative burden.

Θέσπιση ειδικών μέτρων για την αντιμετώπιση της κρίσης λόγω της COVID-19 EN

I voted in favour of this report as I believe that social inequalities arising from the COVID-19 emergency need to be addressed immediately. No one should be left behind. Through the enhancement of the Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived, we intend to give Member States the instruments to respond promptly to the crisis we are facing and to make the social and the food assistance more effective for those in need.

I voted in favour of these specific measures in support of the fisheries and aquaculture sector. The sector plays a vital role in the economy of European States, especially islands. It provides quality food to our communities and is inherently linked to the touristic product of certain regions. Ensuring a decent livelihood to those families who depend on the sector, and enabling the sector to recover in the shortest possible time after the halt is imperative.

I voted in favour of delaying the implementation of the Medical Device Regulation by 12 months. This Regulation greatly improves the transparency of the sector and the patient safety. Nevertheless, enterprises operating in this industry are currently focused on the production of devices, including masks and ventilators that are essential for European citizens and the healthcare system to cope with COVID-19 emergency. This is the reason why a delay of 12 months (which found a broad agreement both in the European Parliament and in the Council) in implementing the Regulation seems reasonable to allow these enterprises to better serve the interests of European citizens.

Συντονισμένη δράση της ΕΕ για την καταπολέμηση της πανδημίας COVID-19 και των συνεπειών της EN

17-04-2020

I supported this resolution as only the immediate and effective adoption of the measures introduced, will result in the least extensive and contracted economic and social impact. Stockpiling and a coordinated effort to ensuring access to medical assistance, essential goods and services, represents the solidarity the Union was built on and is fundamental to our resilience in the future. The swift implementation of the Union’s support to workers will lead to an economic recovery that is not separated from our citizens’ wellbeing. Our efforts to eliminate poverty, stop abuse including gender based and domestic violence, provide equal opportunities to children through a Child Guarantee, shall be present in our immediate response to the crisis and beyond.

I voted in favour of amending the Slots Regulation as I believe that it is necessary to help airlines, especially the smaller national carriers, weather the COVID-19 crisis with the least possible impact. It is not yet clear when travel restrictions will be eased, however we all know it will take time for airlines to be able to return to their full capacity even in the aftermath of COVID-19. We should be prepared for the applicability of such temporary amendments to be extended after October 24th.

I voted in favour of the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative as it represents the first European intervention to cope with the emergency generated by the COVID-19 pandemic. I welcome that European institutions have acted responsibly and fast in this time of crisis.
The proposal we approved today will be able to mobilise EUR 37 billion to provide our SMEs with a first liquidity injection to face the difficult economic period we have ahead and possibly saving jobs. Research and innovation will also benefit from this European action and public health systems will be able to enhance their crisis response capacity.
While I deem crucial that our Union reacts promptly to the current situation, I believe that it is just a first step. I call on the European Commission to work bilaterally with Member States in order to allow them the flexibility they need to make the most out of this initiative and to rapidly direct investment to the sectors most crucial to their present needs in the interest of the all European citizens.

26-03-2020

I voted in favour of the enhancement of the European Solidarity Fund. While this instrument was initially conceived as a response to natural disasters, we now need to broaden its scope and make it applicable to major public health emergencies like the one we are going through right now.
This is indeed a defining moment for Europe (and the world) and only solidarity will get us out of this stronger than before. Making sure that all European citizens, in whichever state they are, have access to the best possible treatment as quickly as possible for as long as it is needed, is our primary objective in these trying times.
I welcome the fact that the total level of appropriations for the Fund will be increased and I look forward to the positive effect that this will leave on each Member State in the face of the COVID-19 emergency.

13-02-2020

I voted in favour of this resolution as the need to struggle for women’s rights across the globe is far from over. This is even true within the confines of the European Union despite the Member States’ commitments especially under the Istanbul Convention. It is crucial to safeguard education and healthcare as basic human rights as tampering with such fundamentals is an attack on the fabric of society.
