Special analysis: let’s map MEPs’ positions on TTIP and EU-US relations in general: a majority of EU parliamentarians seems in favour of TTIP as a whole, at this stage. A softened investor-to-state mechanism might narrowly pass (German SPD and CDU seem kingmakers).
All the EU political groups voted in favour. The votes against the final text came mainly from the Non-Attached MEPs of far-right parties like the Greek Golden Down, the Italian Lega Nord and the Dutch PVV, while French Front National decided to abstain on the vote on the final text.
The two parties have voted the same way in only 147 out of 541 roll call votes in the EP plenary so far (July 2014 – March 2015), or 27%, while in the rest of times they either cancelled each other votes, or one of the parties abstained.
The main issues voted in the non-binding resolution addressing the sexual exploitation of children and child abuse images, were to embrace the investigation of offences, the prosecution of offenders and the protection of child victims.
