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

15η σύνοδος της Διάσκεψης των μερών (COP15) της Σύμβασης για τη βιολογική ποικιλότητα (Kunming 2020) (B9-0035/2020) EN  
 

Following the declaration of climate and environmental emergency by the Parliament, we call for more action to halt and reverse biodiversity globally in the crucial COP15 of the Convention on Biological Diversity as well as in the EU. In the current climate emergency, more ambition is needed to protect our environment and biodiversity. This is why I voted in favour of this Resolution.

Θεσμικά όργανα και οργανισμοί της Οικονομικής και Νομισματικής Ένωσης: πρόληψη των συγκρούσεων συμφερόντων μετά την αποχώρηση από δημόσια υπηρεσία (B9-0047/2020) EN  
 

I voted in favour of this Resolution, which underlines the importance of an open, efficient and independent European administration for the EU as a whole, including institutions, bodies and agencies in the Economic and Monetary Union. Unaddressed conflict-of-interest situations might not only compromise the enforcement of high ethical standards throughout European administration, but also jeopardise the right to good administration, thereby threatening the level playing field required for the proper functioning of the single market.

Αριθμητική σύνθεση των επιτροπών (B9-0039/2020) EN  
 

I voted in favour of the European Parliament decision on the numerical strength of the standing committees, which will reflect the future compositions of the committees.

Πρωτόκολλο στη συμφωνία μεταξύ της ΕΕ, της Ισλανδίας και της Νορβηγίας για τα κριτήρια και τους μηχανισμούς καθορισμού του κράτους που είναι αρμόδιο για την εξέταση αίτησης παροχής ασύλου που υποβάλλεται σε κράτος μέλος, ή στην Ισλανδία ή τη Νορβηγία αναφορικά με την πρόσβαση στο Eurodac για σκοπούς επιβολής του νόμου (A9-0053/2019 - Jadwiga Wiśniewska) EN  
 

I have voted in favour of the report, which is only a technical adjustment that will enable the Republic of Iceland and the Kingdom of Norway to request a comparison of fingerprint data against the data entered by other participating States and stored in the Eurodac database when they seek to establish the identity or get further information concerning a person who is suspected of a serious crime or terrorism or concerning a victim

Συμφωνία ΕΕ-Κίνας σχετικά με ορισμένες πτυχές των αεροπορικών μεταφορών (A9-0041/2019 - Tomasz Piotr Poręba) EN  
 

I have voted in favour of the agreement, which aims to comply with the ruling of the Court of Justice and in accordance with the mechanisms and directives in the Annex to the ‘horizontal authorisation’. This agreement with China replaces certain provisions in the existing bilateral air services agreements between Member States and China.

Κοινό σύστημα φόρου προστιθέμενης αξίας όσον αφορά το ειδικό καθεστώς μικρών επιχειρήσεων (A9-0055/2019 - Inese Vaidere) EN  
 

With this proposal, the business environment is easier for SMEs and it becomes easier for small business owners and business start-ups to operate across borders within Europe. It helps reduce administrative burdens and compliance costs, making small businesses more competitive and helping to level the playing field. This can boost job promotion and trade at a crucial moment for the European economy. That is why I have voted in favour of this report.

Η Ευρωπαϊκή Πράσινη Συμφωνία (RC-B9-0040/2020, B9-0040/2020, B9-0041/2020, B9-0042/2020, B9-0043/2020, B9-0044/2020, B9-0045/2020, B9-0046/2020) EN  
 

I have voted in favour of the report, which calls for an ambitious European Climate Law with a legally binding goal for reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 at the latest, having an intermediate target of at least 55% for 2030, and setting a goal for 2040. The report is asking the Commission to introduce all the required legislative and non-legislative proposals in the next two years, making all sectors contribute to achieve the emission reduction target. It also asks the Council to adopt the 2030 target in line with the Paris Agreement before June 2020 and expects that all open issues of the Paris Rulebook including Article 6 should be finalised at the COP26 in Glasgow

Εφαρμογή και παρακολούθηση των διατάξεων σχετικά με τα δικαιώματα των πολιτών στη συμφωνία αποχώρησης (B9-0031/2020) EN  
 

I supported the European Parliament position on this resolution. The resolution rightly so expresses MEPs concern over how the UK and EU27 governments will manage citizens’ rights after Brexit. Furthermore, this resolution addresses a multitude of issues that citizens (both EU citizens residing in the UK and UK citizens residing in the rest of the EU) might face in the event of the UK’s departure from the EU. It also highlights that the Withdrawal Agreement contains fair and balanced provisions to protect citizens’ rights during and after the transition period.

Ετήσια έκθεση του 2018 σχετικά με τα ανθρώπινα δικαιώματα και τη δημοκρατία στον κόσμο και την πολιτική της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης στον τομέα αυτό (A9-0051/2019 - Isabel Wiseler-Lima) EN  
 

I have voted in favour of the report because it is crucial to promote human rights around the globe. The report expresses its deep concern at the attacks on democracy worldwide in 2018, which reflect the rise of authoritarianism as a political project, embodying disregard for human rights, repression of dissent, politicised justice, predetermined election results, shrinking space for civil society to operate in, and limitations on freedom of assembly and freedom of expression. The report also underlines the importance of civil society allowing for flexible, timely and effective responses to regimes that violate international law, human rights and democratic principles

Ετήσια έκθεση σχετικά με την εφαρμογή της κοινής εξωτερικής πολιτικής και πολιτικής ασφάλειας (A9-0054/2019 - David McAllister) EN  
 

In the current geopolitical situation with increased security threats in Europe and in our neighbouring countries such as human trafficking, arms trafficking, terrorism attacks and wars, I generally support the idea of coordinating security measures and defence cooperation in Europe, provided that this is in accordance with the principles of the United Nations Charter and that it does not prejudice the specific character of the security and defence policy of Member States. For that reason, I have abstained on this report because the interests of neutral countries, such as Malta, are not fully taken into account. Malta is a neutral country and the Constitution prohibits participation in military alliances and international cooperative efforts promoting warfare strategies.
