22/06/2022 | 17:12:24 Thank you very much. First of all, I would like to congratulate all three rapporteurs for these three really important reports. I would like to focus on the one by Ms Yevheniia KRAVCHUK - because I believe that if women are not involved in the reconstruction of societies, there is a huge risk that the new societies will look exactly like the old ones did. These are mostly societies that have a very hard time resolving conflicts; a very hard time coming to a dispute culture that is not an... 22/06/2022 | 11:51:39 Thank you very much, Madam President. Thank you all my colleagues for this very rich debate, for this broad support on this report. I think most of what is said I totally agree with just to tackle some issues, yes, legal measures are important. The new approach of the European Union, as countries, as the member countries, to appoint co-ordinators is important and really makes a difference obviously in many cases. I also totally agree that it is so important to have desegregated data about... 22/06/2022 | 10:05:24 Thank you very much Mrs President. I am happy to have this report today in the plenary.

It makes absolute sense to start with the political elites. One of the reasons for this – even if not as much as in the past – is that politicians are still something of a role model for many people, or at least they should be. They certainly set an example in their behaviour, in their actions, in their speeches. That is why it is very, very... 20/06/2022 | 12:12:01 Thank you very much, Mr President. I would like to start where Mr Aleksander POCIEJ ended at the Serbian election observation, where I would like to share some really concrete concerns with you and share some main points of criticism. Three of them are more general, which is, first of all, the access to media, which is very uneven and we saw that especially with the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS). The party of the president had the vast majority of time and media, especially TV, which is the...
