Id-Delegazzjonijiet

The European Parliament’s delegations, the official bodies which maintain and develop its contacts with third countries, have elected their chairs and vice-chairs. The delegations’ compositions reflect the political composition of the House. The delegations are also bound to represent the views expressed by the Parliament as a whole. (Read more: European Parliament delegations elect their bureaus )

 

Plans to prolong a largely duty-free access to the EU market for Ukraine’s exports until the end of 2015 were backed by the European Parliament on Thursday. (Read more: MEPs prolong Ukraine's duty-free access to the EU market )

 

Parliament passed three resolutions on Thursday, calling on the Russian authorities not to close down the Memorial civil rights NGO; urging the Uzbek authorities to take immediate action to protect human rights; and calling for the immediate arrest of all those responsible for the disappearance of 43 students in Mexico. (Read more: Human rights: closing down of Russian Memorial NGO; Uzbekistan; Mexico )

 

Concerns about how to reconcile the fundamental rights and non-discrimination of migrants with the need to gather information to dismantle criminal networks profiting from trafficking were the key points raised by MEPs in Wednesday evening’s debate with the Italian Presidency of the Council, represented by Benedetto Della Vedova on the EU-wide police crackdown on clandestine migrants "Mos Maiorum". (Read more: MEPs ask for further details of EU-wide police crackdown on clandestine migrants )

 
Stqarrijiet għall-istampa (it-tieni parti)
 

Concerns over the possible threats to the EU's internal security posed by Europeans returning home after fighting for the so-called “Islamic State” (IS) were raised by MEPs in a debate on Wednesday. Some called for a swift approval of the EU Passenger Name Record (PNR) proposal to better detect potential terrorists entering or leaving the EU. Most stressed, however, that all measures taken by the EU to tackle this problem must respect fundamental rights.

L-Erbgħa filgħodu l-MEPs approvaw il-kulleġġ il-ġdid ta' 27 Kummissarji, kif ippreżentati mill-President elett Jean-Claude Juncker, b'423vot favur, 209 vot kontra, u 67 astensjoni. Il-Kummissjoni l-ġdida issa tinħatar formalment mill-kapijiet ta' stat jew gvern tal-UE u tibda l-mandat tagħha għall-ħames snin li ġejjin fl-1 ta' Novembru. (Aqra iktar dwar dan: Il-Parlament jeleġġi l-Kummissjoni Ewropea l-ġdida )

 

Il-pajjiżi membri tal-UE jridu joħorġu l-flus meħtieġa biex iwettqu l-wegħdiet dwar il-ħolqien tat-tkabbir u l-impjiegi, ir-riċerka u l-iżvilupp u biex l-UE tkun tista' taqdi r-rwol tagħha fil-politika barranija. Dan qaluh l-MEPs hekk kif nhar l-Erbgħa rrifjutaw id-deċiżjoni tal-Kunsill li jnaqqas il-baġit għall-2015. Qabel ma jintlaħaq ftehim dwar il-baġit tas-sena d-dieħla, il-Parlament qiegħed jisħaq li l-ewwel ikun hemm qbil dwar żieda fil-fondi għall-2014. (Aqra iktar dwar dan: Il-PE u l-baġit UE: il-kontijiet iridu jitħallsu; aktar tkabbir u impjiegi )

 

EU countries need to act more like owners of economic policy reform pledges they themselves signed up to, MEPs stress in a report adopted on Wednesday. Given that only 10% of the European Commission's country-specific reform recommendations (CSRs) for 2013 were implemented in full and that little or no progress was made on 45% of them, MEPs believe "there is an inconsistency between European commitment and national implementation of the CSRs by member states". (Read more: EU countries should act on their economic reform pledges, say MEPs )

 

After reviewing the last two hearings of commissioners-designate held the day before in Strasbourg, the Conference of Presidents, the group leaders, unanimously declared the hearings process closed. (Read more: Hearings of candidate commissioners closed; vote on new Commission tomorrow )

 

Mr Giovanni Buttarelli was voted top candidate for the post of European Data Protection Supervisor by the Civil Liberties Committee on Tuesday after three and a half hours of hearings on Monday evening. Top candidate for Assistant Supervisor is Mr Wojciech Wiewiorowski. The appointments still need to be agreed with the Council of Ministers. (Read more: Civil liberties MEPs vote on their preferences for EU data protection watchdog )
