VoteWatch Europe, the independent organisation which tracks the voting records of Members of the European Parliament and of the Council of Ministers, is pleased to invite you to its EP plenary session debriefing.

Votes to be analysed include:
 
  • -Change of rules of procedure on roll-call votes in EP Plenary and committees: what implications?

These votes can and will be analysed only if they are held by roll call. Except in the case of final votes on legislative files, votes only take place by roll call at the request of a political group or group of MEPs.


Doru Frantescu, VoteWatch Europe policy director, will present an analysis of the outcome of key votes being held in Strasbourg this week. He will show which coalitions of MEPs, national delegations and political groups were instrumental in passing - or blocking (elements of) these proposals, and how this relates to earlier votes on the same or similar topics. Michiel van Hulten, VoteWatch Europe managing director, will chair the event.
 
Attendance is free for VoteWatch Europe members, journalists, MEPs, EU and member state officials, and MEP assistants. 
For others the participation fee is €50 excl. VAT per person, €25 excl. VAT for NGOs. Click here for more information on how to become a VoteWatch Europe member.
