Europaparlamentet sammanträder från 16 till 19 januari 2017

 
 

Europaparlamentets nya talman kommer att utses genom en fjärde och sista omröstning. De återstående kandidaterna är de två som fick flest röster i den tredje omröstningsomgången, Gianni Pittella (S&D, IT) och Antonio Tajani (EPP, IT). Den sista omröstningen väntas inledas cirka klockan 20:00. Den nya talmannen kommer sedan att presenteras cirka klockan 21:30. (Läs mer: Parlamentets talmansval: Tajani och Pittella till fjärde omröstningsomgången )

 

Europaparlamentet röstar på tisdagen den 17 januari om att välja sin nya talman för att ersätta Martin Schulz, som avgår efter 5 år på posten. Inför den första omröstningen på tisdagsmorgonen finns sju officiella kandidater. Men nomineringar kan tillkomma eller dras tillbaka inför varje röstningsomgång om talmannen inte är vald i första omgången. Följ kandidaternas presentationer och omröstningarna live på vår webbplats och i sociala medier från och med tisdag morgon. (Läs mer: Europaparlamentet redo att välja ny talman )

 

I samband med öppnandet av årets första plenarsammanträde i Strasbourg manade parlamentets talman Martin Schulz till en tyst minut för den tidigare portugisiske statsmannen Mário Soares, som avled den sjunde januari i år. Mário Soares spelade en viktig roll i Portugals övergång från diktatur till demokrati, samt i landets anslutning till den Europeiska gemenskapen. Martin Schulz underströk att “det är vår skyldighet att hedra och försvara Mário Soares politiska arv”. (Läs mer: Plenaröppnandet - tyst minut för Mário Soares )

 

Gränsbevakningsmyndigheten Frontex bedömer att antalet människor som anlände till Europas stränder minskade med två tredjedelar under 2016. Färre migranter kommer till Grekland medan antalet som kom till Italien slog rekord. Enligt FN var 2016 det dödligaste året någonsin för migranter att korsa Medelhavet, med över 5 000 människor döda eller saknade. 12 januari mötte ledamöter i utskottet för medborgerliga fri- och rättigheter representanter för kommissionen, rådet och FN-organet UNHCR.

Pressmeddelande (del 2)
 

Utveckling har fört människor från flintaverktyg, till hjulet och ångmaskiner. Nästa steg är robotar. De har blivit en del av våra liv i form av leksaker, drönare, bilar eller tunga maskiner. Men trots att deras användning kan orsaka skada, är de ännu inte ordentligt reglerade. I ett betänkande som utskottet för rättsliga frågor röstade igenom idag, uppmanar parlamentet EU-kommissionen att lägga fram lagstiftningsförslag. Föredragande Mady Delvaux (S&D, Luxemburg) gav sin syn. (Läs mer: Intervju: Delvaux om varför EU-lagstiftning om robotar behövs )

 

The priorities of the Maltese Presidency of the EU Council of Ministers are being outlined to parliamentary committees by Maltese ministers at a series of meetings taking place in January. (Read more: Maltese Presidency priorities discussed in committee )

 

Following an exchange of views with the members of the Committees on Budgets, Budgetary Control and Legal Affairs, a majority of the committees’ coordinators were satisfied that Commissioner Günther Oettinger is in a position to assume the portfolio that is transferred to him and look forward to a close working relationship. (Read more: Committees satisfied that Oettinger is in a position to assume budget portfolio )

 

EU rules for the fast-evolving field of robotics, to settle issues such as compliance with ethical standards and liability for accidents involving driverless cars, should be put forward by the EU Commission, urged the Legal Affairs Committee on Thursday. (Read more: Robots: Legal Affairs Committee calls for EU-wide rules )

 

EU bör i framtiden vara mindre beroende av direkta budgetära bidrag från medlemsländerna och istället anta ett förnyat system med “egna medel”, såsom har varit fallet tidigare under flera årtionden. Det föreslår ett betänkande som kommer att presenteras i parlamentet på torsdag. Den franske EPP-ledamoten Alain Lamassoure är medförfattare till rapporten, och berättade inför presentationen att förslagen inte innebär någon förflyttning av makt från de nationella parlamenten till Bryssel. (Läs mer: Parlamentarikern Lamassoure: Förändrad EU-finansiering förändrar inte makten )

 

Progress in transferring asylum seekers from Greece and Italy to other EU countries under an intra-EU deal and from third countries to EU territory will be assessed by Civil Liberties Committee MEPs on Thursday. They will also discuss the results of the March 2016 deal with Turkey to improve the management of migration and refugee flows.
