Digital Markets Act: EP discusses its position ahead of talks with Council

In a debate shortly after 9.00 with EC Vice-President Vestager and Commissioner Breton, plenary will discuss how to end the unfair practices used by big online platforms and thereby ensure fair competition in the EU’s market. Parliament will then adopt its position on the proposal for a Digital Markets Act ahead of negotiations with the Council of the EU, due to start under the French Council presidency in 2022. The final vote will take place on Wednesday.

In brief:

Sakharov Prize 2021: press seminar. Ahead of Wednesdays’ award ceremony for 2021 recipient Alexei Navalny, his daughter, Daria Navalnaya, and Leonid Volkov, one of his political advisers who served as his chief of staff during the 2018 presidential election campaign, will participate in a seminar for journalists at 15.30.

EU’s response to the authoritarian Nicaraguan regime. At 15.00, plenary will discuss the deeply worrisome political and human rights situation in Nicaragua with EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell. In a resolution set to be adopted on Thursday, MEPs are likely to reiterate their position that the 7 November presidential elections were “a farce”.

European Year of Youth in 2022. Following a debate in the morning with Commissioner Gabriel, plenary is expected to vote to confirm 2022 as a year the EU will listen to, and focus on, the needs of young people and engage with them in policymaking at the EU and national levels.
