Is-sitwazzjoni fil-Belarussja EN


I voted in favor of the Resolution because of violation of the fundamental rights in BY after 9 August elections, huge pressure against the political opponents, severe beatings of peaceful demonstrators. I abstained of the amendment regarding the World Ice hockey 2021 championship in Minsk and Riga, because it would automatically punish our neighbors in Latvia.

Is-sitwazzjoni fir-Russja, l-avvelenament ta' Alexei Navalny EN


I abstained on the Resolution as a whole for three reasons: 1) Poisoning of Mr Navalny is a huge tragedy, but we do not know who did it. 2) EP asks in the text of Resolution to stop the Norstream-2. 3) I am against economic sanctions in general, because I do not see any single time when sanctions brought the result. Diplomacy and a way of dialogue is the only thing can bring more understanding between RU and EU. The final text of the Resolution of EP does not serve to progress in our relations.

L-implimentazzjoni tal-Ftehim ta' Assoċjazzjoni tal-UE mal-Georgia (A9-0136/2020 - Sven Mikser) EN


I voted in favor of EU-Georgia Association progress report. EU is the main trade partner for GEO, and GEO is the most progressive country in the process of reforms among tree post-Soviet countries, which signed and ratified the Association agreements with EU in 2014: Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia. My full support to the idea of bringing GEO closer to the EU and to the reforms in GEO supported by the EU and the international community, in particular, constitutional and electoral code amendments in accordance to OSCE/ODIHR recommendations, what leads GEO to a more proportional electoral system for the upcoming elections.

Il-Fond għal Tranżizzjoni Ġusta (A9-0135/2020 - Manolis Kefalogiannis) EN


I strongly support the Just Transition Fund and believe that those who are the most impacted by the green transition, should be helped.
However, this fund should be strictly used for its purpose: investments in regions and people who otherwise would be left in poverty.
As Shadow Rapporteur in the EMPL Committee, I believe that investments and reskilling are key to ensure a transition, which is just for everyone.

Kwittanza 2018: Baġit ġenerali tal-UE - Il-Parlament Ewropew (A9-0021/2020 - Maria Grapini) EN


The monthly move to Strasbourg by the European Parliament is very costly. I believe that the European Parliament needs a single seat, in order to cut down expenditure as well as limit the pollution which results from that travel.

Attivitajiet tal-Ombudsman Ewropew fl-2018 (A9-0032/2019 - Peter Jahr) EN


The Ombudsman has done important work in 2018, which was reflected in this Report. Now is also the time to look to the future and see what the next steps are. For us in the PETI Committee, it will be important to establish clear rules on the Ombudsman elections, in order to avoid unfair practices. From the Ombudsman, I would like to see an inquiry into the practices of the Commission on how infringement complaints are dealt with. I am looking forward to our cooperation on this matter.

Il-Patt Ekoloġiku Ewropew (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


Dealing with climate change has been proven to be an important challenge, particularly for young people and future generations. While I support the Green Deal, I believe that it is important that measures are taken to soften the blow to regions which are heavily dependent on fossil fuels. Climate action should be balanced with proper transitional measures in order to prevent serious economic and social harm.

Rapport annwali dwar l-implimentazzjoni tal-Politika Estera u ta' Sigurtà Komuni (A9-0054/2019 - David McAllister) EN


The Report drew attention to important points regarding the common foreign and security policy, such as the call for a stronger, united, effective, proactive and more strategic European Union. However, I have abstained on the final vote as the approach towards cooperation with Russia was unbalanced.

Rapport annwali dwar l-implimentazzjoni tal-Politika ta' Sigurtà u ta' Difiża Komuni (A9-0052/2019 - Arnaud Danjean) EN


I strongly support the message that the EU should develop a proper common defence policy. I have abstained from the final vote due the disproportional approach of defence policy towards Russia.

Il-pożizzjoni tal-Parlament Ewropew rigward il-Konferenza dwar il-Futur tal-Ewropa (B9-0036/2020, B9-0037/2020, B9-0038/2020) EN


The European Union is ready for change. Just as the Convention on the Future of the European Union before has brought about much needed reform, I hope that the Conference will be at least as successful. The biggest difference this time, is the participation of citizens and civil society which is crucial for any meaningful reforms.
