Turkey progress report vote postponed

The European Parliament decided on Thursday to postpone a vote on Turkey’s progress report until June, because of the large number of amendments and the limited time.

Taking the floor, rapporteur Kati Piri said the vote should be postponed for next month`s plenary in Strasbourg, since there were too many amendments and too little time.

It is in the interest of all groups to find a broad majority on such an important issue, the Dutch MEP of the Socialists and Democrats said.

German MEP Alexander Graf Lambsdorff from the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats said he was in favour of postponing the vote.

“We worked hard for this report over the last five months, there has been too little time between the vote in the Committee of Foreign Affairs and the plenary, something that did not allow for the necessary compromises,” Lambsdorff said.
