EEAS: Committee on Legal Affairs adopted by a large majority the RAPKAY report

The European Parliament gave its green light to the establishment of the new European diplomatic corps, introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon.

The Committee adopted by a large majority the RAPKAY report on Amending the Staff Regulation with a view to the EEAS. The pre-negotiated package of compromise amendments (CA 1-42) was adopted en bloc, whereas the amendments going beyond the agreement were withdrawn (AMs 39 and 40 by Mr LEHNE), thus paving the way for a deal via a plenary vote on the 20 of October.

Mr ZWIEFKA (EPP/PL) requested a separate vote one by one on the above-mentioned amendments, but his request was not supported.
