Romanian MEPs have some of the poorest attendance records

Titled “MEPs on report: how do they represent us in Europe,” the survey launched yesterday by the Qvorum European Institute for Participative Democracy labels the Romanian MEPs’ activity as being “unsatisfactory.” The survey shows that the Romanian delegation within the EP has not managed to capitalize on its potential of influence thought to be the seventh largest within the EP given the number of MEPs and offices held. The Romanian MEPs’ individual attendance is on the rise, however overall the Romanian delegation continues to have some of the poorest attendance records. According to a report, its attendance level was 24th in a 27-country table.

After having an average attendance level of 74.14 per cent in the first year, in the first part of his second year at the European Parliament MEP Traian Ungureanu (PDL) has had no absences. Ioan Mircea Pascu (PSD) has reported an attendance drop of 43 per cent. Likewise, dropping attendance levels are seen in the case of the following Romanian MEPs too: Adrian Severin (PSD), Claudiu Tanasescu (PRM), Rares Niculescu (PDL) and Corneliu Vadim Tudor (PRM).

The report authored by the Qvorum Institute points to the fact that Romanian MEPs are at the forefront of activities that do not entail support from national delegation colleagues or from the political group they are members of. Thus, Romanian MEPs are very active in what concerns taking the floor.
