Prime Minister Boyko Borissov discussed the developments related to the Mobility Package 1 with the President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani. The two held a telephone conversation today. In view of the most recent vote on texts of the package in the European Parliament Committee on Transport and Tourism, whereby two of the three reports on the package were rejected, the Bulgarian Prime Minister urged President Tajani to consider the possibility of leaving the issue to be dealt with by the next constitution of the parliament after the European elections. Borissov described as strange the situation, whereby there was a political agreement between the heads of the various parliamentary groups in the transport committee that the three reports on the Mobility Package 1 were inseparable from one another and at the same time there is no logic that the rejected reports would be put to the vote in plenary. "Two times in the transport committee and once in plenary, MEPs have reject the controversial reports on the Mobility Package 1 and this shows that the texts are unbalanced and cause discontent both among MEPs and in a number of EU member states," highlighted Borissov.
To express all the reservations on the rejected reports on the Mobility Package 1, as well as in respect to the procedures for voting in the European Parliament plenary, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov sends Rossen Jeliazko, Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications, to Brussels. The Minister will expain all the arguments of our country on the subject at a meeting with the President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani. At the meeting, Zeliazkov will once again present Bulgaria's idea for the Mobility Package 1 to be left for the next European Parliament to decide on.
