europa-261011-cAt the opening of Wednesday’s plenary session, at 15.00, Parliament’s President Martin Schulz will propose that it vote on Thursday, as a matter of urgency, on the emergency scheme to relocate 120,000 asylum seekers from Italy, Greece and Hungary to other member states, as agreed “in principle” by the Justice and Home Affairs Council on Monday. The opening will be followed by a debate on the outcome of the ministers’ meeting.The 14 September Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) Council approved a decision to relocate 40,000 asylum seekers from Italy and Greece over two years, on which Parliament was consulted (Ska Keller report, approved on 9 September). However, ministers could only agree “in principle to relocate an additional 120,000 persons in need of international protection from any member states exposed to massive migratory flows”, based on a proposal presented by the European Commission on 9 September. Parliament is also being consulted on this second emergency relocation proposal.Mr Schulz will propose at the opening of the session that Parliament deal with this second emergency relocation proposal under the urgency procedure (Rule 154 of the EP Rules of Procedure) and to extend the session until Thursday morning. The plenary vote would then take place on Thursday 17 September at 11.00, ahead of the next extraordinary JHA Council meeting on 22 September, where the proposal is again to be on the agenda. The outcome of the 14 September JHA Council meeting will be debated with European Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans and Luxembourg’s Minister for Immigration and Asylum Jean Asselborn, on Wednesday, after the opening of the session.
