This approach received the backing of the Christian-democrats (EPP), conservatives (ECR), liberals and democrats (ALDE). The majority was formed also with the votes of British Labour, UKIP and most of the non-attached MEPs.
EU Parliamentarians voted in favour of overturning the Commission’s proposal as well as the one adopted by the INTA Committee and asked for mandatory compliance for “all Union importers” of the so-called “conflict minerals”.
The MEPs adopted a resolution urging the Member States to resume negotiations to extend minimum period of paid maternity leave. The resolution was adopted with 419 votes in favor, 97 against and 161 abstentions.
