Poursuite de la mise en place de l’union des marchés des capitaux: améliorer l'accès au financement sur le marché des capitaux, en particulier pour les PME, et accroître la participation des investisseurs de détail (A9-0155/2020 - Isabel Benjumea Benjumea) EN

Explications de vote écrites

I voted in favor of the report enhancing initiatives intended to further develop the Capital Markets Union, as I believe that it will be beneficial for many European SMEs that still struggle to access finance. While this problem has represented a historical challenge for small businesses, the COVID19 pandemic has exacerbated the issue. This is the reason why SMEs need to be supported by allowing them to easily access capital markets, an objective that can give SMEs a lifeline during the crisis we are living and offer them a chance to reach their full potential.

Renforcer la garantie pour la jeunesse (B9-0310/2020) EN

Explications de vote écrites

I voted in favor of the resolution on the Youth Guarantee. A testimony to European solidarity, the Youth Guarantee’s goal is to guarantee for people under thirty a quality offer for education, traineeship, and employment as soon as they have left school or have become unemployed. I particularly support the Guarantee, as it is a way to give disadvantaged citizens the same opportunities as anyone else. With this vote, the EP is calling for a binding instrument to fight discrimination, abolish precarious work, and condemn social and wage dumping.

Création d’un mécanisme de l’Union pour la démocratie, l’état de droit et les droits fondamentaux (A9-0170/2020 - Michal Šimečka) EN

Explications de vote écrites

I supported this report as I believe that the Rule of Law is a cornerstone to the European project. However, it was always my view that the performance of Member States in this regard had to be measured according to objective criteria to ensure that no political motive obscures our judgment vis-a-vis one Member State or another. The setting up of an independent panel of experts to monitor the situation in all Member States endows the proposal with confidence in the impartiality of the new system. It makes for a more cohesive and comprehensive approach and provides the Union with constant and more accurate visibility of Member States’ performance. Envisaging a stable country consonant with the Rule of Law in the absence of rigorous respect to fundamental rights and freedoms is highly unlikely. For this reason, it is key to the solidity of the report and the proposal to note the broadening of the scope of the mechanism established, covering the state of fundamental rights in the member states.
