Automated data exchange for police cooperation (“Prüm II”) (A9-0200/2023 - Paulo Rangel)

08-02-2024
Written explanations of vote

I supported this proposal, which seeks to improve, streamline and facilitate the exchange of criminal information between Member States, therefore providing EU law enforcement authorities with enhanced tools to fight crime and terrorism. The proposed regulation provides for the use of central routers (the Prüm II router and the European Police Records Index System (EPRIS)) to which national databases connect, thus replacing multiple connections between these databases.

The EU priorities for the 68th session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (B9-0091/2024)

08-02-2024
Written explanations of vote

The Commission for the Status of Women (CSW) is the principal global intergovernmental body dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women. Its 68th session will take place from 11 - 22 March 2024, with representatives of Member States, UN entities, and non-governmental organizations from all regions of the world. I voted in favour of this text, which recalls the EU’s commitments, policies and measures to achieve gender equality and most specifically to tackle women’s poverty, through addressing its root causes (education, access to the labour market, career breaks), while promoting and supporting women’s equal and full participation in the economy.

Situation in Serbia following elections (RC-B9-0106/2024, B9-0106/2024, B9-0108/2024, B9-0131/2024, B9-0132/2024, B9-0133/2024, B9-0134/2024)

08-02-2024
Written explanations of vote

The Serbian parliamentary and local elections held on 17 December 2023 regrettably deviated from international standards and Serbia’s commitments to free and fair elections. I supported this resolution, which urges the Serbian authorities to investigate, prosecute and bring to justice those responsible for any criminal offences during the elections. It highlights that constant early elections, permanent campaign mode and long delays in forming governments do not contribute to efficient democratic governance of the country, but instead weaken the parliament and lead to a lack of parliamentary legislative oversight and legitimacy.
