2014 budget

The budgets committee will vote on the EU’s 2014 budget, the first under the new 7-year framework.

Vote Wednesday and Thursday

Sakharov shortlist

The foreign affairs and development committees will vote on a shortlist for this year’s Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought. ECR foreign affairs spokesman Charles Tannock has nominated Malala Yousafzai on behalf of the ECR.
Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani school pupil and education activist from Pakistan’s northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. She was shot last October on a school bus, seeing her eventually moved to the UK for treatment. She has since become a global figure speaking out in favour of women’s rights and education rights.
