Text tabled : A7-0029/2012

  Vilja Savisaar-Toomast (ALDE), in writing. (ET) I support the principle of gender equality in political decision making. I would like women’s representation to be equal to that of men in the compilation of lists of election candidates and in the filling of high-level European Union positions. If these principles cannot otherwise be implemented, I also approve of the idea that in future, each Member State will submit both a woman and a man as candidates for the position of Member of the European Commission. Women’s political participation is one of the foundations of democracy and is essential in achieving sustainable development and peace, as recognised in the joint declaration issued at the 66th Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations in New York. Since Ms Pietikäinen’s ‘Resolution on women in political decision making – quality and equality’ emphasises the abovementioned principles, I voted in favour of the resolution.
