I veckan i Strasbourg valde ledamöter Antonio Tajani till ny talman för den andra halvan av parlamentets mandatperiod. Kammaren valde även 14 vice-talmän och 5 kvestorer. Dessutom avslog de kommissionens svarta lista över högriskländer för penningtvätt, samt uppmärksammade det akuta hjälpbehovet för flyktingar i den europeiska vintern.

(Läs mer: Parlamentet förkastar EU-kommissionens lista över högriskländer för penningtvätt )
