Todo diputado puede presentar una explicación por escrito sobre su voto en el Pleno. Artículo 183 del Reglamento interno

Lista de terceros países cuyos nacionales están sometidos a la obligación de visado para cruzar las fronteras exteriores y lista de terceros países cuyos nacionales están exentos de esa obligación, en lo que respecta a la retirada del Reino Unido de la Unión (A8-0047/2019 - Sergei Stanishev) EN  
 

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.

Gestión de los residuos (B8-0231/2019) EN  
 

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.

Requisitos de control del cumplimiento y normas específicas para el desplazamiento de los conductores en el sector del transporte por carretera (A8-0206/2018 - Merja Kyllönen) EN  
 

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.

Tiempos de conducción máximos, pausas mínimas y períodos de descanso diarios y semanales, y posicionamiento mediante tacógrafos (A8-0205/2018 - Wim van de Camp) EN  
 

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.
Good working conditions for drivers and fair business conditions for road transport undertakings are of paramount importance to creating a safe, efficient and socially accountable and non-discriminatory road transport sector, which is able to attract qualified workers. To facilitate that process it is essential that the Union social rules in road transport are clear, proportionate, fit for purpose, easy to apply and to enforce and implemented in an effective and consistent manner throughout the Union.

Adaptación a la evolución del sector del transporte por carretera (A8-0204/2018 - Ismail Ertug) EN  
 

I support the delicate compromise found. In order to combat the phenomenon of so-called ‘letterbox companies’ and guarantee fair competition and a level playing field in the internal market, clearer establishment criteria, more intensive monitoring and enforcement, and improved cooperation between Member States is necessary. Road transport operators established in a Member State should have a real and continuous presence in that Member State and actually conduct their transport business and perform substantial activities from there. Therefore, and in light of experience, it is necessary to clarify and strengthen the provisions regarding the existence of an effective and stable establishment, while avoiding a disproportionate administrative burden.

Fondo Europeo Marítimo y de Pesca (A8-0176/2019 - Gabriel Mato) EN  
 

I support this resolution but have always kept the interest of the Barcelona and Mediterranean fleet and specificities in mind. It is first and foremost in fishermen’s interest that fishing remains a sustainable business. I voted in favour of helping them renew their fleet so that it is more modern and more efficient and sustainable.

Refuerzo de la seguridad de los documentos de identidad y de los documentos de residencia expedidos a ciudadanos de la Unión (A8-0436/2018 - Gérard Deprez) EN  
 

I support this report, it sets common security standards for ID cards and residence documents issued to EU nationals.
At present there are more than 250 different versions of identity cards and residence permits in circulation in the EU with various security features, which increases the risk of documents being falsified or used fraudulently.
Liberal and Democrat MEPs regard the new regulation as an important step forward to minimise document fraud, identity theft and in the fight against terrorism. The new cards will have a standardised format with two biometric identifiers (the facial image and two fingerprints) and the EU flag as a new feature. All these elements combined will facilitate the free movement of EU citizens, reduce administrative hassle and strengthen the internal security of the Union.

Producto paneuropeo de pensiones individuales (A8-0278/2018 - Sophia in 't Veld) EN  
 

I agree with this initiative because it sets an individual pension product which is deemed to be truly European. It is meant to be voluntary, complementary, flexible and it won’t presuppose the creation of a parallel European-wide pension system. This is a competence that stays in the hands of the Member States. The Union had to give an incentive for those workers that work throughout its territory, making the freedom of movement tangible.

Conciliación de la vida familiar y la vida profesional de los progenitores y los cuidadores (A8-0270/2018 - David Casa) EN  
 

I agree with this directive because it is one of the first deliverables of the European Pillar for Social Rights. The EU needs to give answers to labour issues and address the work-life balance challenges faced by working parents and carers. This directive focuses on targeting measures to address the under-representation of women in employment by improving the conditions of reconciling working and private duties, but also their unequal treatment and opportunities in the labour market. It seeks to introduce a number of new or higher minimum standards for parental, paternity and carers’ leave, which are geared at helping to address the anomalies that exist in achieving a work life balance for both parents and carers. The Rapporteur believes that these measures are both timely and necessary in order to improve access to work-life balance arrangements and to better reflect the changing working patterns in our society.

Fondo Social Europeo Plus (FSE+) (A8-0461/2018 - Verónica Lope Fontagné) EN  
 

I support this useful fund. For 60 years now, the European Social Fund (ESF) has been promoting employment, improving skills and fostering social inclusion. The ESF has a legal basis in the Treaty as one of the EU structural funds aiming to strengthen the EU’s economic, social and territorial cohesion and reduce disparities between regions.
