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

Συμφωνία ΕΕ-ΗΠΑ σχετικά με την κατανομή μεριδίου της δασμολογικής ποσόστωσης για τις εισαγωγές βοείου κρέατος υψηλής ποιότητας (σύσταση) (A9-0038/2019 - Bernd Lange) EN  
 

I have voted in favour of the report, which states that there will be no increase in the overall volume of beef coming into the Union. The US will have a greater share of the existing quota, which is filled on an annual basis. The Agreement with the US will protect the interests of Union stakeholders against the threat of increased duties on certain Union products. The report stresses that the US may fully avail of this reallocation, however the existing overall quota of 45 000 metric tonnes, and the product specifications do not change, so there is no impact on beef supply to the Union. This agreement foresees a closure to the WTO dispute once the agreement is fully implemented.

I have voted in favour of the report, which welcomes and acknowledges the fact that the other members of the WTO that export non-hormone-treated beef to the EU agreed to support this agreement by accepting that the vast majority of the quota would be allocated to the US; acknowledges the fact that, according to the Commission, no compensation has been provided to those WTO members for supporting the agreement

I have voted in favour of the resolution, which calls on the new interim authorities to take the necessary steps to change the situation, restore trust and confidence, and, as their main purpose, to organise the electoral process. The resolution also calls for a dialogue to be established with the aim of immediately organising a new democratic, inclusive, transparent and fair election, with a newly composed electoral body, as a way out of the current crisis, while avoiding political retaliation.

European citizens all across Europe and the world are calling for leaders to take action against climate change. We demand that all parties under the Paris Agreement significantly ramp up their efforts to urgently further reduce climate emissions. That is why I voted in favour of this resolution, which declares a climate and environment emergency, calling on the Commission, the Member States and all global actors, and declares its own commitment, to urgently take the concrete action needed in order to fight and contain this threat before it is too late.

Διάσκεψη των Ηνωμένων Εθνών για την κλιματική αλλαγή του 2019 (COP25) (B9-0174/2019) EN  
 

The EU must act together and lead by example in international climate negotiations through concrete actions and measures. COP25 will mark a decisive turning point in the fight against climate change. The Socialists and Democrats will not stop fighting for this cause. With US President Donald Trump formally initiating the process to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, citizens in Europe and beyond are now turning to the EU for direction. That is why, at the end I voted in favour of this resolution, which highlighted the need for the EU to raise its ambition level for 2030 in order to reach the 2050 target and confirmed the demand of the EP that the European Green Deal announced by European Commission President-elect Ursula Von Der Leyen.

Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world today and remains largely unreported due to the impunity, silence, stigma and shame surrounding it. Therefore, I have voted in favour of this resolution, which calls on the EU to ratify the Istanbul Convention in order to fight violence against women online and offline. . However, I have some reservations with regard to the paragraphs that stresses the right to abortion, which in my opinion is strictly a competence of the national governments.

Πρόσφατες ενέργειες της Ρωσικής Ομοσπονδίας εναντίον των Λιθουανών δικαστών, εισαγγελέων και ανακριτών που συμμετείχαν στη διερεύνηση των τραγικών γεγονότων που έλαβαν χώρα στις 13 Ιανουαρίου 1991 στο Βίλνιους (RC-B9-0182/2019, B9-0182/2019, B9-0183/2019, B9-0184/2019, B9-0185/2019, B9-0186/2019) EN  
 

I have voted in favour of the resolution, which shows its support and solidarity with the Lithuanian officials and judges that are under Russian investigation.

Μέτρα για την αντιμετώπιση του αντικτύπου της απόφασης του ΠΟΕ σχετικά με τη διαφορά για την Airbus στην ευρωπαϊκή γεωργία (RC-B9-0197/2019, B9-0197/2019, B9-0198/2019, B9-0201/2019, B9-0203/2019, B9-0204/2019, B9-0206/2019, B9-0208/2019) EN  
 

I supported this Resolution calling for support measures for EU farmers affected by US sanctions, within the context of the trade dispute over subsidies to Airbus. US President Donald Trump has decided to levy a surcharge of 25% on certain European food products (French wines, Italian cheeses, Scotch whiskies, Spanish olive oils, etc.). The agricultural sectors, mainly in Spain, France, Ireland and Italy, are being hit hard by the sanctions applied by the United States in the Airbus dispute.

Η κρίση στο δευτεροβάθμιο δικαιοδοτικό όργανο του ΠΟΕ (B9-0181/2019) EN  
 

I voted in favour of this strong resolution calling for an urgent unblocking of the appointment of judges to the World Trade Organisation’s Appellate Body, its Geneva-based court that arbitrates trade disputes. We have three weeks left to save the WTO from a potentially deadly blow by Trump. If the US continue to block the appointment of yet another judge, the WTO will no longer be able to hear cases and resolve disputes among trade partners.

Εν εξελίξει διαπραγματεύσεις για μια νέα συμφωνία εταιρικής σχέσης ΕΕ-ΑΚΕ (B9-0175/2019) EN  
 

I have voted in favour of the resolution, which strongly supports revitalising and reinforcing the EU´s relations with ACP countries to maintain our strong partnership. The EU and ACP are collectively a strong global voice to tackle our shared challenges, and the new Partnership Agreement must reflect this. We draw particular attention at this stage to the vital importance of including a strong parliamentary dimension in the new Agreement, through the continuation of the Joint Parliamentary Assembly. Democratic oversight and a forum for the legislatures - of both governing and opposition parties - to scrutinise, debate and cooperate is vital to the future of the partnership and its cooperation with the electorate and civil society.
