7.4. UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (A6-0229/2009, Rumiana Jeleva)

- After the vote


  Gay Mitchell (PPE-DE). - Madam President, a vote was defeated because there was an equal number of votes just a couple of moments ago. A Member has made a very serious allegation about voting in the Chamber. I would ask you to halt proceedings until we find out whether there are Members voting who should not be voting, or whether this allegation is false. It is a very serious allegation.



  President. – I have just said that it will be verified. That means that it will be verified immediately. We are dealing with it.


  Bruno Gollnisch (NI). – (FR) Madam President, I will be very brief on this point. As one of our fellow Members has made an accusation, I will ask him to clarify his accusation. As you said, the verification needs to take place immediately, and if, as I believe, it turns out after verification that the accusation is false, I ask that all the conclusions be drawn from this.


  President. – I said that the verification would be done. It is going to be done immediately, so I will keep you informed in the next few minutes.
