29/01/2020 | 15:35:45 Madam Secretary General, Welcome to the Assembly for your first annual communication. Since your election in June last year, the Assembly has had excellent relations with you, and we are grateful for your support for the work on the complementary joint procedure with the Committee of Ministers. As I said in my inaugural speech, we have moved from dialogue to trialogue. Today, we have the opportunity to strengthen this new model of co-operation between the Parliamentary Assembly, the Committee of... 29/01/2020 | 12:01:57 Mr President, welcome to the Council of Europe and to our Parliamentary Assembly. This chamber is not unknown to you, as you are one of our former colleagues so basically it's a little bit welcome back home.

We will now proceed to vote on the question... 27/01/2020 | 12:24:02 Thank you. I inform you that the Bureau of the Assembly is against. We shall now vote on the request. The vote is open. Okay. The vote is almost closed. I mean, it's going up and down here. It's very strange. Okay, the vote is closed. The request for an urgent procedure has failed to achieve the required two-thirds majority. Then we go to the current debates. No, we have others. What is this?
