Question for written answer E-002490-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
Matt Carthy (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Mercosur ratification process
 Answer in writing 

In relation to the EU-Mercosur trade agreement, I wish to ask the Commission to outline its position regarding the ratification procedure.

Specifically, can it confirm that the Council will use the procedure of common agreement (otherwise known as unanimous agreement) rather than qualified majority voting?

Can it confirm that each Member State national parliament will also be required to vote on the ratification of this trade agreement?

Finally, does it intend to provisionally apply any aspects of the trade agreement prior to the completion of the formal ratification process?
