I thank our colleague Mr Roberto RAMPI for his excellent report on this important subject for our democratic system. I want to support our rapporteur when he stresses the importance of the informed exercise of the right to vote and the right of citizens to participate in a responsible and democratic way in policy-making and decision-making processes. I also want to support his words when he emphasises the importance of the role of parliament... 26/01/2021 | 09:56:04 President, dear colleagues, First of all, I would like to thank our rapporteur for his very comprehensive work.
