Draft general budget of the European Union for 2018 - all sections

25-10-2017

Talousarvioon liittyvässä keskustelussa suurin helposti säästettävä kuluerä syntyisi siirtymisellä yhteen istuntopaikkaan. Tästä aiheutuu vuosittain merkittävä kuluerä, joka olisi helposti leikattavissa.

EU accession to the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (A8-0266/2017 - Christine Revault d'Allonnes Bonnefoy, Anna Maria Corazza Bildt)

12-09-2017

I voted in favour of this report because violence against women and domestic violence are still very much present in today’s world, including within the borders of the European Union. It is important to do everything in our power to help the victims, bring perpetrators to justice and prevent any future instances of violence. It is one of the crucial steps on the way to achieving gender equality within the European Union.

 

Impact of international trade and EU’s trade policies on global value chains (A8-0269/2017 - Maria Arena)

12-09-2017

Mietintö pääpiirteissään sisältää kannatettavia elementtejä, mutta kauppapolitiikan kestävyyden ei tulisi perustua ainoastaan EU:n jäsenmaiden yrityksiä koskevaan sääntelyyn, vaan ideaalia olisi luoda globaalit säännöt, jotka sitovat kaikkia yrityksiä. Luomalla yksinomaan eurooppalaista sääntelyä vahingoitamme eurooppalaisten yritysten kilpailukykyä. Globaalien arvoketjujen säänteleminen edellyttää globaaleja sääntöjä. Tästä syystä en voi hyväksyä mietintöä kokonaisuutena.

 

Macro-financial assistance to Moldova (A8-0185/2017 - Sorin Moisă)

04-07-2017

Moldova on edelleen Euroopan köyhin maa, joten Moldovalle maksettava makrotaloudellinen avustus on ehdottoman perusteltua. Olen erittäin tyytyväinen neuvotteluiden lopputulokseen ja siihen, että rahoituksen edellytykseksi korostetusti vaadittiin eurooppalaisten perusarvojen kunnioittamista. Demokratian, oikeusvaltioperiaatteen ja ihmisoikeuksien noudattaminen myös taloudellista avustusta koskevissa päätöksissä on turvattava.
Mitä tulee vaalilain uudistukseen, viittaus Venetsian komitean lausuntoon tässä asiassa on näkemykseni mukaan oikea keino, sillä EU:lla ei tässä roolissa ole mahdollisuutta suoraan arvioida suvereenin maan sisäisiä päätöksiä.

 

Working conditions and precarious employment (A8-0224/2017 - Neoklis Sylikiotis)

04-07-2017

Äänestin tyhjää, sillä mietinnössä puututtiin teemoihin, jotka kuuluvat jäsenmaiden toimivaltaan.

 

Uniform format for visas (A8-0028/2016 - Sylvia-Yvonne Kaufmann)

01-06-2017

Äänestin tämän mietinnön puolesta, sillä useissa jäsenvaltioissa on havaittu vakavia viisumitarrojen väärennös- ja petostapauksia. Tämän vuoksi olisi tarve uudelle, turvaominaisuuksiltaan kattavammalle mallille, jotta viisumitarra olisi turvallisempi ja ehkäistäisiin väärennöstapaukset.

 

Digitising European industry (A8-0183/2017 - Reinhard Bütikofer)

01-06-2017

Äänestin tämän mietinnön puolesta, sillä teollisuudella on keskeinen asema Euroopan taloudessa. Euroopan on pysyttävä kilpailukykyisenä, minkä takia on tärkeää, että keskitytään kehittämään Eurooppaa digitalisoinnin saralla. Jotta tämä onnistuisi, Eurooppa tarvitsee yhteisen nykyaikaistamista koskevan strategian sekä näkemyksen.

 

Combating anti-semitism (B8-0383/2017, B8-0388/2017)

01-06-2017

Äänestin tämän päätöslauselman puolesta, sillä kaikenlaiset, niin fyysiset kuin verbaaliset, antisemitistiset hyökkäykset on tuomittava. Pidän tärkeänä, että antisemitismin torjunta lähtee koulutuksen tasolta, sillä koulut tarjoavat erinomaisen mahdollisuuden välittää suvaitsevaisuuden ja kunnioituksen arvoja.

 

Discharge 2015: EU general budget - European Parliament (A8-0153/2017 - Dennis de Jong)

27-04-2017

Äänestin läpinäkyvyyden puolesta parlamentin jäsenille maksettavaa yleistä kulukorvausta koskien. Tällä hetkellä säännöt eivät ole riittävän selkeät, jotta valvonta olisi mahdollista.
Lisäksi tuen yhtä istuntopaikkaa parlamentille. Sillä, missä tämä istuntopaikka on, ei ole minulle merkitystä, kunhan parlamentin turha kuluerä istuntopaikkojen välillä kulkemisesta saadaan lopetettua.

 

Palm oil and deforestation of rainforests (A8-0066/2017 - Kateřina Konečná)

04-04-2017

Äänestin mietinnön puolesta, koska palmuöljyn tuotannosta on saatava nykyistä kestävämpää. EU:n on edistettävä toimia, joilla estetään sademetsien hävittämistä palmuöljyplantaasien tieltä.
