Remote Voting Procedure
European Parliament was able to react quickly by organizing a remote voting procedure, but maybe not for long.
Ivan Vilibor Sinčić supported continuing of using the remote voting system in European Parliament.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 crisis is far from being over yet and cases are rising dramatically in several Member States. Against this background, European Parliament President’s Mr. Sassoli decision to return to the in-person voting system in plenary is highly questionable.
In the course of the COVID-19 crisis, the European Parliament was able to react quickly by
organizing a remote voting procedure, which has allowed Members of the European Parliament, to cast their votes safely and efficiently.
Preventing gatherings of more than 700 people in the plenary hall, did not only avert potential
COVID-19 outbreaks, but at the same time safeguarded the European Parliament’s reputation.
In those difficult times, a public meeting with that amount of people would have most likely
created a public outcry.
Therefore, the Members of Parliament, including Ivan Vilibor Sinčić, are asking for a continuation of the remote voting system.
