02/10/2019 | 19:59:32 Thank you very much, dear colleagues. I would like to thank the co-rapporteurs for their excellent work. I think overall the report is positive. We can welcome the positive development in North Macedonia. We can also commend the authorities of North Macedonian for their commitment to advance reform and look forward to the implementation of the reform. Major changes have happened: the country held a referendum and ratified the historic Prespa agreement, solving the name issue after 27 years... 02/10/2019 | 10:35:02 Thank you very much. Dear colleagues, Dear rapporteurs, As you know, ombudsmen institutions are important for democracy.

We have both been parliamentarians and advocates for women’s rights for many years and this debate is not only an opportunity to take stock of what has been done in past years but also to be ambitious and call for more action in the future. We... 23/01/2019 | 16:21:13 We welcome these reports on media freedom and public service media.
