  • [01] EP Plenary approves Papadopoulou's report on European Year of Citizens

    The Plenary of the European Council approved on Tuesday in Strasburg the report of the Cypriot MEP Antigoni Papadopoulou on the "European Year of Citizens (2013). The report was approved by the EP Plenary with 518 votes in favour, 63 against and 19 abstentions.

    Speaking to CNA, Cypriot MEP responsible for drafting the EP opinion, Antigoni Papadopoulou said that the adoption of the proposal of designating 2013 as the European Year of Citizens is of great importance for Cyprus.

    In her statement to CNA, Papadopoulou said that the decision is very important for Cyprus because the issue was completed during the Cyprus Presidency of the EU, and because of the ongoing violation of several freedoms and rights of the people of Cyprus due to the Turkish occupation of the islands' northern third.
