Assessment of Hungary's compliance with the rule of law conditions under the Conditionality Regulation and state of play of the Hungarian RRP (B9-0511/2022)

24-11-2022
Written explanations of vote

This resolution sent a strong message that any deal with the Hungarian Government on measures that would allow the release of billions of EU funds, including the Recovery Fund, despite Orbán’s consistent trashing of the rule of law and insufficient promised reforms will not be accepted by the European Parliament, Renew Europe repeats today.
No funds shall be unblocked before a meaningful, verifiable restoration of the rule of law is demonstrated. The steps taken this far by the Hungarian Government to address the deterioration of the rule of law and corruption are far from enough, and long-term monitoring is needed before any decision can be taken. Meanwhile, my group, Renew Europe, wants to pass the suspended EU funds directly to civil society to ensure that Hungarian citizens are not punished for the corrupt actions of Prime Minister Orbán.

Resolutionen om beskyttelse af husdyr ogaf store rovdyr danner grundlaget for fremtidig sameksistens mellem mennesker og dyr. Rovdyr er et nødvendigt element i et sundt økosystem, og rovdyrsbestande øger biodiversiteten betragteligt ved at begrænse bestanden af planteædere, såsom hjorte, der kan ellers afgræsse hele landskaber. Frygten for rovdyr er naturlig for mennesker, men i den moderne verden er den i det store hele unødvendig. Den fare rovdyr udgør imod landbruget kan begrænses med den korrekte indretning og moderne teknologi. Jeg mener, at rovdyr i naturen giver os langt mere end vi mister.
Rovdyr medfører økonomiske tab for de enkelte landmænd, men det kan vi løse med støtte og kompensationer.Jeg stemte blanket for resoltuionen, da jeg synes den endte med at gå for langt ift at støtte op om drab på rovdyr, som jeg mener skal kontrolleres på en rimelig måde i overensstemmelse med videnskabelige metoder og ikke på baggrund af frygt.

Improving EU regulations on wild and exotic animals to be kept as pets in the European Union through an EU positive list (B9-0489/2022) DA

Absolut nødvendigt at sikre bedre vilkår for såkaldte eksotiske kæledyr, derofr var jeg glad for at kunne være med til at stemme denne resolution igennem. Dyr skal have vilkår som afspejler deres natulirge behov uanset om de er varaner eller kaniner.
