parlamento europeoParliament backed on Thursday a proposal to give Sweden an extra year to take its share of asylum-seekers agreed in last year’s emergency relocation decisions. Sweden, which already has the EU’s highest per capita rate of applicants for international protection (11,503 per million inhabitants in 2015), requested a temporary suspension of the relocations back in November in view of the sudden and sharp increase of arrivals it was facing.Of the 160,000 people to be relocated from Italy and Greece over two years, Sweden was allocated a total of 5,727 persons. The final decision will be taken by the Council –expected in the coming weeks-, but Parliament had to be consulted. The proposal was endorsed by 396 votes against 190 with 50 abstentions.
