PV
 

Before the vote:

  Sari Essayah (PPE). – Madam President, in the Finnish version of this report, the numbering of articles is wrong from Article 33 onwards. So, in the Finnish version of this report, the numbering is wrong.

 
  
 

After the vote on paragraph 58, part 1:

  Sophia in 't Veld, rapporteur. – Madam President, can you please check the vote on the first part before we move to the second part. Let us take a check on the first part and then vote on the second part.

 
  
 

After the vote on paragraph 58, part 2:

  Sophia in 't Veld, rapporteur. – Madam President, sorry, maybe I am confused but, now we have taken a check on the first part, can we vote on the second part because I made an intervention during the vote?

  President. – We have already voted on it by roll call.

  Sophia in 't Veld, rapporteur. – Madam President, I called for a check during the vote on the second part; I think many people were not aware that we were voting. Can we please first take the vote on the second part, and then move to 26?

  President. – That is not possible.

After the vote on Amendment 26:

  Carl Schlyter (Verts/ALE). – Madam President, in the last roll-call vote before this one, it said Amendment 26 on the screen so that was what I thought I voted on in the vote before this one.

  President. – Mr Schlyter, I am being told that the vote, or the paragraph, or the amendment appeared correctly on the screen. I did not see, given my position. Yes, that is what I am told, so let us move on.

 
  
 

Before the final vote:

  Licia Ronzulli (PPE).(IT) Madam President, ladies and gentlemen, I just want to remind the House that we are voting on a resolution on equality between men and women and therefore on the need to give women the tools to reach important positions and to find a work-life balance. It is a pity that the amendments on maternity leave and quotas for women have been rejected. As a result, I urge everyone to reject this directive.

 
  
 

After the final vote:

  Bernd Posselt (PPE).(DE) Madam President, the system did not work along our entire row. I would like to ask you to repeat the vote. The lights throughout the entire row did not work at all.

 
  
MPphoto
 

  President. – I am sorry, but that is not possible.

  Sergio Paolo Francesco Silvestris (PPE).(IT) Madam President, ladies and gentlemen, I would like to correct what Mr Posselt said. The problem is that you did not say ‘The vote is open’, but immediately said ‘The vote is closed’. You first gave the floor to Ms Ronzulli and then said ‘The vote’. Since you did not announce the start of the vote, many of us did not press the button. This is an oversight that can be verified by the recording so, even though I voted, I am asking you to repeat the vote for the benefit of my fellow Members who did not, because the translation was delayed.

(Applause)

  Joseph Daul (PPE).(FR) Madam President, if 100 people were unable to vote, there must be a technical problem. Therefore, I call upon you to hold the vote again and the problem will be resolved in one minute.

(Applause)

  President. – Right, the administrative services are telling me that there have actually been some technical problems, so the vote will be put to the House once again. The vote is re-opened.

Have you all voted? Have you all checked that your machines work? Good. The vote is closed. Adopted.
