Eight months ahead of the European Elections, Facebook has still not done enough to allay fears of electoral manipulation

Eight months ahead of the European Elections, more needs to be done to ensure that the elections are not subject to the same malicious interference that affected the US elections or Brexit campaign.
That was the message from S&D Group leader Udo Bullmann in a meeting of political leaders in the European Parliament today:

S&Ds: Today the European Parliament sent a clear message to Netanyahu: respect human rights, don’t tear down Khan al-Ahmar

oday, the plenary of the European Parliament approved an important resolution on the threat of the demolition of Khan al-Ahmar and other Bedouin villages. We are proud to have pushed the majority of this house to come together and stand firmly behind such a sensitive and important issue for the compliance of human rights and international law.

S&Ds win seven-year battle to end double EU food and products standards

The S&D Group led today a broad cross-party coalition to ensure that there are no second-class products, nor consumers, in the EU. With this vote, the European Parliament recognised the existence of dual quality of food and other consumer products, a practice that refers to the sale of seemingly identical products of lower quality, in some European countries. This is a battle the S&D Group has been fighting even before the problem become the subject of public debate.

S&Ds encourage all political parties to support the name agreement on North Macedonia ahead of referendum on September 30

On the occasion of Prime Minister Zoran Zaev’s speech in the European Parliament, Socialists and Democrats welcome the agreement reached in June by Prime Ministers Zaev and Tsipras to rename the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia “Republic of North Macedonia".
S&D president Udo Bullman said:

S&Ds call for more transparency in EU approval of pesticides to avoid another Glyphosate scandal

Trust in the authorisation of Plant Protection Products (PPP) in the EU has been seriously undermined by recent scandals and particularly by the renewal of the approval of Glyphosate. That is why Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament took the lead to ensure better legislation and enforcement.
Following the findings of the special committee on the Union’s authorisation procedure for pesticides (PEST), S&D MEP, Pavel Poc, drafted a report with strong recommendations that was backed by the European Parliament today.
