Written explanations of vote

577

European citizens’ initiative (A8-0226/2018 - György Schöpflin)

05-07-2018

I voted in favour of this report in order to enter into inter-institutional negotiations with the Council on the European Citizens’ Initiative.

Launch of automated data exchange with regard to DNA data in Croatia (A8-0225/2018 - Jaromír Štětina)

05-07-2018

I voted in favour of this report because Croatia has fulfilled the necessary obligations and is entitled to receive personal data pursuant to Articles 3 and 4 of Decision 2008/615/JHA.

Financial rules applicable to the general budget of the Union (A8-0211/2017 - Ingeborg Gräßle, Richard Ashworth)

05-07-2018

I voted in favour of this report because it creates flexibility in the EU budget process by utilising financial tools more efficiently, harmonising reporting requirements and streamlining oversight and administration.

European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) (A8-0322/2017 - Kinga Gál)

05-07-2018

I voted in favour of this report because it aims to increase EU security regarding non-EU, non-visa nationals entering the Schengen Area. In this way, the EU can more securely determine potential safety or public health risks, generate better assessments of third-country nationals and preserve Schengen security overall.

European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS): Europol tasks (A8-0323/2017 - Kinga Gál)

05-07-2018

I voted in favour of this report because it furthers the guidelines and procedural specifications of the ETIAS implementation.

European Agency for the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the area of freedom, security and justice (A8-0404/2017 - Monica Macovei)

05-07-2018

I voted in favour of this report because it addresses the importance of reliable IT infrastructure. By ensuring the proper functioning of eu-LISA, Europe can better maintain its Schengen Information System as well as a host of other data priorities related to matters of freedom, security and justice.

2019 budget - Trilogue mandate (A8-0247/2018 - Daniele Viotti)

05-07-2018

I voted in favour of this report because it insists on the following as priorities for the 2019 EU budget: sustainable growth, youth, innovation, competitiveness, security, the fight against climate change, transitioning to renewable energy and migration.

73rd Session of the UN General Assembly (A8-0230/2018 - Eugen Freund)

05-07-2018

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

Guidelines for Member States to prevent humanitarian assistance being criminalised (B8-0314/2018)

05-07-2018

I voted in favour of this resolution because it urges the Commission to adopt guidelines for Member States specifying which forms of facilitation should not be criminalised. It also notes that actors involved in humanitarian assistance that supports and complements life-saving action undertaken by the competent authorities of Member States must remain within the remit established for humanitarian assistance by the Facilitation Directive, and that their operations must take place under the control of the Member States.

Adequacy of the protection afforded by the EU-US Privacy Shield (B8-0305/2018)

05-07-2018

I voted against this resolution because it states that the Privacy Shield arrangement does not provide a sufficient level of protection required by Union data protection law and the EU charter as interpreted by the European Court of Justice.
