Explanations of vote

Text tabled : B7-0094/2011

  Maria do Céu Patrão Neves (PPE), in writing. (PT) Croatia’s path to accession of the European Union has progressed significantly; progress has been noted particularly in attaining the benchmarks set in the negotiating chapters. It should be stressed that, according to Eurobarometer, the majority of the Croatian population believed very recently that accession to the EU would not benefit them. It is important to give consideration to whether or not the Croatian people want to join the EU and to allow them a free choice. The expansion of the European project is desirable, and beneficial to the creation of a single area of peace, freedom, democracy, progress and well-being. However, it is crucial that this project is and continues to be based solely and fundamentally on the will of the people. Croatia’s accession is important in geopolitical terms in order to encourage the rest of the countries of the Western Balkans to launch and resolutely implement reforms related to accession to the European project. Following these benchmarks, I voted for this resolution.
