Luke Ming FLANAGAN : Γραπτές αιτιολογήσεις ψήφου 

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 voted against this as while this meat may be hormone free and “high quality”, it is the meat of “feedlots” of 30.000 animals in average, is produced with growth antibiotics, that is forbidden in the EU.

Συμφωνία ΕΕ-ΗΠΑ σχετικά με την κατανομή μεριδίου της δασμολογικής ποσόστωσης για τις εισαγωγές βοείου κρέατος υψηλής ποιότητας (ψήφισμα) (A9-0037/2019 - Bernd Lange) EN  

I voted against this as the US and some other partners of the EU are challenging at the WTO the precautionary principle applied by the EU. This includes the ban of import to the EU of meat containing artificial growth hormones.

Η κατάσταση στη Βολιβία (RC-B9-0187/2019, B9-0187/2019, B9-0188/2019, B9-0189/2019, B9-0190/2019, B9-0191/2019, B9-0192/2019) EN  

I chose to vote against the joint motion for resolution on the situation in Bolivia as I find it gives a very unbalanced report on what actually happened in Bolivia. GUE/NGL had a far more balanced, fair and comprehensive motion for resolution that condemned the coup d’etat in Bolivia as well as outlining the situation regarding the election and the fact that the majority of international observers of the elections agreed that it was a fair election. I would have voted in favour of this if the joint one had fallen.

Κλιματική και περιβαλλοντική κατάσταση έκτακτης ανάγκης (RC-B9-0209/2019, B9-0209/2019, B9-0211/2019, B9-0212/2019, B9-0215/2019, B9-0216/2019, B9-0218/2019, B9-0220/2019) EN  

I voted in favour of this as it calls for immediate and ambitious action that is crucial to limiting global warming to 1.5° C and avoiding massive biodiversity loss.

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

I chose to vote in favour of this resolution on the UN COP25 climate change conference as it outlines some key concerns for Europe and the world regarding the climate crisis. There were many positive elements to this report such as the inclusion of a just transition, the importance of biodiversity, the revision of trade agreements to include climate obligations and much more.

Η προσχώρηση της ΕΕ στη σύμβαση της Κωνσταντινούπολης και άλλα μέτρα για την καταπολέμηση της έμφυλης βίας (B9-0224/2019, B9-0225/2019, B9-0226/2019) EN  

I voted in favour of this resolution as I believe this to be a very important issue. Violence against women is a violation of human rights which happens across the world. The EU is committed to combating violence against women and being a part of the Istanbul Convention is a very positive step in the right direction.

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 abstained on this as our group had no input to the resolution and did not submit our own group resolution.

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 voted against this joint resolution to support our group resolution, which reflects the view of our group that while trade can be beneficial, it must be managed in order to protect vulnerable sectors. It is clear that the globalization of the food supply chain has not benefited the primary produces, a sector characterised by below cost production, low returns and exposure to unfair trading practices due to its fragmented nature.

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

I voted in favour of this as the WTO Appellate Body plays a fundamental role in the WTO dispute settlement system, while the WTO needs reform, it should not be allowed to collapse without a replacement.

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

I voted in favour of this Resolution as the Cotonou Partnership is coming to an end in 2020 and I believe there should be a new partnership agreement between the EU and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States. This agreement is one of the most comprehensive framework for cooperation between the EU and developing countries and represents more than half of all UN member countries.
