UWC calls upon PACE members to reject draft resolution on decision-making process concerning credentials and voting
On 20 September 2018, the Committee on Rules of Procedures of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) adopted and tabled with the plenary assembly a draft resolution on the decision-making process concerning credentials and voting.
These proposed amendments will make it more difficult to discipline the larger in number PACE delegations for unacceptable behaviour. In addition, these proposed amendments come at a time when PACE will be considering whether to allow the Russian Federation to regain all of its rights despite its persistent and blatant violations of all PACE resolutions that call for the Russian Federation to de-occupy Crimea and end its military aggression against Ukraine.
“The Ukrainian World Congress calls upon PACE members to reject the draft resolution concerning credentials and voting during the plenary session scheduled for 9 October 2018 in Strasbourg (France) so as to ensure that PACE retains reasonable means to pressure its members to comply with its resolutions,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij.
