Last speeches

20/11/2020 | 14:47:44 Thank you, Mister President. Ladies and gentlemen, I am very glad that we can discuss these reports today. I was one of the first, I believe, who, in the summer when it was foreseeable that we would not be able to return to our regular operations in September or October either, urged that we should create the conditions to enable us to continue our work under online conditions. We have been working very effectively in the committees since spring, also online, in terms of content.

I remind colleagues that the typewritten text can be submitted electronically if possible no later than four hours after the list of speakers is interrupted. I remind you that at the end of the current affairs debate the Assembly is not... 29/01/2020 | 17:55:55 Mr President. Dear colleagues, thank you very much. I do not want to go into the details of the report but I want just to remind us once again about the starting point, about the objectives and about what we have been able to achieve. I think we committed to build a more robust mechanism that would enable us to act in conjunction between the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly in cases of severe violations of core principles of the Council of Europe. We wanted to do this...
