Written explanations of vote

Odometer manipulation in motor vehicles: revision of the EU legal framework (A8-0155/2018 - Ismail Ertug)

31-05-2018

I voted in favour of this report because it seeks to prevent odometer manipulation by instituting an EU legislative framework mandating legal, technical, and operational barriers to this practice across Member States.

Union Civil Protection Mechanism (A8-0180/2018 - Elisabetta Gardini)

31-05-2018

I voted in favour of this report because it supports victims of gender-based violence by providing services, psychological support, and other types of assistance. It further strengthens the EU’s solidarity mechanism so to increase Member States’ capacities for emergency response as well as the EU’s ability to reinforce these assets.

Connecting Europe facility after 2020 (RC-B8-0242/2018, B8-0242/2018, B8-0243/2018, B8-0245/2018, B8-0246/2018, B8-0247/2018)

31-05-2018

I voted in favour of this resolution because the development and upgrading of transport infrastructure in the EU is essential to ensuring both sustainable growth, jobs and competitiveness and social and territorial cohesion within the Union, as well as countering imbalances between different regions.

Situation in Nicaragua (RC-B8-0244/2018, B8-0244/2018, B8-0248/2018, B8-0249/2018, B8-0250/2018, B8-0251/2018, B8-0252/2018, B8-0253/2018)

31-05-2018

I voted in favour of this report because it calls for the Nicaraguan government to allow an international, independent and transparent investigation in order to prosecute those responsible for severe human rights violations. Furthermore, it calls for the Nicaraguan authorities to rebuild the rule of law, security and democracy in the society.

Gender equality and women's empowerment: transforming the lives of girls and women through EU external relations 2016-2020 (A8-0167/2018 - Linda McAvan, Dubravka Šuica)

31-05-2018

I could not support this report because the final version of the text contained references to the right to abortion, which is not a competence of the European Union.

Implementation of the EU Youth Strategy (A8-0162/2018 - Eider Gardiazabal Rubial)

31-05-2018

I voted in favour of this report because young people are facing considerable challenges stemming from precarious working conditions in terms of wages, stress, and contract length. This EU Youth Strategy aims at creating more, and equal opportunities for all young people, especially in education and in the labour market. It can help promote the active citizenship, social inclusion and solidarity of all young people.

Implementation of the Ecodesign Directive (A8-0165/2018 - Frédérique Ries)

31-05-2018

I voted in favour of this report because Ecodesign and energy labelling policy have proven to be effective in greater energy efficiency, and this report is critical to the transition to a more sustainable, low-carbon economy.

Mobilisation of the EU Solidarity Fund to provide assistance to Greece, Spain, France and Portugal (A8-0175/2018 - José Manuel Fernandes)

30-05-2018

Draft amending budget No 1/2018 accompanying the proposal to mobilise the EU Solidarity Fund to provide assistance to Greece, Spain, France and Portugal (C8-0181/2018)

30-05-2018

Mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund: application EGF/2018/000 TA 2018 - Technical assistance at the initiative of the Commission (A8-0172/2018 - Eider Gardiazabal Rubial)

30-05-2018

I voted in favour of this report because it mobilises the European Global Adjustment Fund to provide assistance to workers shouldering the burden of major changes to global trade patterns. This report concerns a new proposal for a decision to mobilise €345,000 from this Fund to cover technical assistance, monitoring and information gathering, and to offer advice to Member States on utilising, following up on and conducting evaluations on the European Global Adjustment Fund.
