Listing the third countries whose nationals must be in possession of visas when crossing the external borders and those whose nationals are exempt from that requirement, as regards the UK's withdrawal from the EU (A8-0047/2019 - Sergei Stanishev)  
 

I support this deal.
The decision is based on the expectation that, in the interest of maintaining close relations, the United Kingdom will grant full visa reciprocity to the nationals of all Member States.
This should be reciprocal and based on the mutual interest of both sides of the Channel.

Waste management (B8-0231/2019)  
 

I support this report that underlines that in order to support the transition towards a more circular economy, public financing of waste management should be consistent with the goal of shifting upwards in the implementation of the waste hierarchy; therefore believes that funds should be directed towards prevention, reuse, separate collection and recycling plans and projects.

Enforcement requirements and specific rules for posting drivers in the road transport sector (A8-0206/2018 - Merja Kyllönen)  
 

I support the difficult compromise reached. I am aware the Eastern and Central European countries are not happy about the outcome, but this is a difficult balance found between freedoms under the single market and fair competition across Europe.
Given the high mobility of workforce in the road transport sector, sector—specific rules are needed to ensure the balance between the freedom to provide cross—border services for operators, the free movement of goods and the social protection of drivers. Therefore, the aim of this directive is to provide legal certainty and clarity, to contribute to the harmonisation and fostering of enforcement and to the fight against illegal practices and a lower administrative burden.
