24/06/2022 | 10:20:18 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, As mentioned in the excellent report by our colleague Ms Carmen LEYTE, epidemics and contagious diseases can spread rapidly across countries and regions. Vaccination must be promoted as an international public good and know-how must be shared. This is the opinion of the ALDE group, which emphasises individual responsibility, respect for institutions and equality of all towards health.

At the same time... 28/01/2020 | 10:40:33 Thank you, Mr President, Dear colleagues, In my speech, I would like to re-emphasise the excellent report by our two colleagues, "Moving towards the rule of law in Poland and elsewhere".  This report recognises some of the difficulties faced by the Polish judiciary and judicial system, especially with regard to the efficiency of the administration of justice.
