EP calendar revised to ensure Parliament can exercise its core functions
Group leaders adopted a revised calendar of parliamentary activities on Tuesday, following the precautionary measures taken to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Due to the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Conference of Presidents (EP President and political leaders) modified the European Parliament’s calendar of activities for the next weeks due to force majeure. The aim is to enable Parliament to exercise its core functions (legislative and budgetary powers, as well as plenary sessions and meetings of governing bodies of the institution), while complying with the duty of care for its Members and staff and with a view to protect public health.
The April part-session initially scheduled from Monday 30 March until Thursday 2 April will take place in Brussels on Wednesday 1 April in the afternoon and Thursday 2 April in the morning.
All activities scheduled for the week starting on 16 March will be postponed or cancelled. The week starting with 23 March stays unchanged.
