Interim report on the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027 – Parliament's position with a view to an agreement (debate)

  Marian-Jean Marinescu (PPE). – Madam President, the EU has to take some very important decisions in a very short time. There is Brexit, the budget and also a lot of other regulations and laws regarding the horizontal policies, and all this should be done before the elections. Europe politically is not in a very good period, and I think that the budget is one of the most important decisions because it will show that Europe will go forward stronger and committed to supporting its citizens to have a better future. So Parliament will vote tomorrow on a very important text showing what it wants, which means supporting the new policies, but at the same time keeping the traditional policies at the level to be accepted by the Member States.

I think this is a new approach – to start from the bottom and not to distribute the money from the top – and I think it’s a good signal also for the European Council. Your responsibility, Commissioner, is to convince. I know it is very difficult in the European Council to have a decision before the elections.
