21/06/2023 | 19:56:26 Yes, that's right, Madam President, thank you. Madam Chair, The Committee has given its unanimous support to the rapporteur's precise and balanced work. As we have seen today, the issues dealt with in this report are the subject of lively discussion in the United Kingdom, which we know to be an ancient, vibrant and exemplary democracy. These discussions relate as much to the draft Charter of Fundamental Rights, which it seems may not be adopted, as to the Illegal Immigration Bill. It is... 19/06/2023 | 15:37:53 Thank you, Mister Chairman. When I arrived at the Council of Europe, people who had been there longer than I had said to me: "Observing elections is one of the best things we do in this institution, one of the most useful things."

I believe that this shows, finally, that all the countries represented here are fighting for the same values: the values of the rule of law, democracy and human rights which are the foundation of our institution. The... 27/01/2023 | 10:46:39 Thank you, Madam Chair. First of all, I would like to thank all those from the political groups who support this report and who have made compliments. Mr FRIDEZ, you said "thank you, Damien COTTIER", but you should say "thank you, Fabien GOUTTEFARDE", and you should say "thank you, Günter SCHIRMER" to thank the secretariat support.
