4. Composition of Parliament
The Romanian authorities had given notice of the appointment of Marian Zlotea to a post incompatible
with that of Member of the European Parliament, pursuant to Article 7(1) of the Act concerning the election
of the Members of the European Parliament by direct universal suffrage. Parliament noted the appointment
and, under Rule 4(1), established this vacancy with effect from 17 February 2009.

The same authorities had advised of the election to the European Parliament of Ioan Lucian Hămbășan in
place of Marian Zlotea, with effect from 1 March 2009.

Under Rule 3(2), until such time as his credentials had been verified or a ruling had been given on any
dispute, and provided that he had previously made a written declaration stating that he did not hold any
office incompatible with that of Member of the European Parliament, Ioan Lucian Hămbășan would take his
seat in Parliament and on its bodies and would enjoy all the rights attaching thereto.

5. Requests for the defence of parliamentary immunity


Aldo Patriciello had submitted a request for the defence of his immunity and privileges, in connection with
proceedings brought against him before Isernia District Court.

Umberto Bossi, former Member of the European Parliament, had submitted, through his lawyer, a request
for the defence of his immunity and privileges, in connection with proceedings before the Verbania District
Court relating to events which had taken place while he was a Member of the European Parliament.

Pursuant to Rule 6(3), those requests had been referred to the relevant committee, in this case the JURI
Committee.

6. Follow-up to a request for the defence of immunity


Following the decision of the European Parliament of 24 October 2006 to waive the parliamentary
immunity of Bogdan Golik at the request of the Prosecutor’s Office of the Court of Appeal of Brussels,
the Belgian authorities had notified Parliament, in accordance with Rule 7(9), of the conclusion of the legal
proceedings concerning him.

That communication would be forwarded for information to the JURI Committee.

13. Texts of agreements forwarded by the Council


The Council had forwarded a certified true copy of the following:

— Stepping Stone Economic Partnership Agreement between Côte d’Ivoire, of the one part, and the
European Community and its Member States, of the other part.
C 234 E/16 EN Official Journal of the European Union 29.9.2009

Monday 9 March 2009

14. Transfers of appropriations


The Committee on Budgets had considered the Commission’s proposal for transfer of appropriations DEC
01/2009 (C6-0053/2009).

Having noted the Council’s opinion, it had authorised the transfer in full under Article 24(3) of the Financial
Regulation applicable to the general budget of the European Communities.

15. Order of business


The next item was the order of business.

The final draft agenda for the March I 2009 sittings (PE 420.647/PDOJ) had been distributed and a number
of changes had been proposed (Rule 132):

Monday

— Request from the PSE Group to add the report by Magda Kósáné Kovács on the social situation of the
Roma and their improved access to the labour market in the EU (A6-0038/2009) (Item 12 on the final
draft agenda) to voting time the next day (Tuesday).

— Request from the PPE-DE Group to add the report by Herbert Reul on possible solutions to the
challenges in relation to oil supply (A6-0035/2009) (Item 73 on the final draft agenda) to voting time
the next day (Tuesday).

The President said that the deadline for tabling replacement joint motions for resolution had been set at
19.00 that evening and that it was therefore not technically possible to put those reports to the vote the
next day. He proposed that the vote on the two reports be held on Wednesday, 11 March 2009.

The following spoke: Hannes Swoboda, on behalf of the PSE Group.

Parliament agreed to the President’s proposal.

Tuesday

— Request from the Verts/ALE Group to add to the agenda a statement from the Commission on MON810
genetically modified maize and to wind up the debate with the tabling of a motion for a resolution.

The following spoke: Daniel Cohn-Bendit, on behalf of the Verts/ALE Group, who moved the request,
Martin Schulz, on behalf of the PSE Group, Christofer Fjellner, on behalf of the PPE-DE Group, and Martin
Schulz.

Parliament rejected the request by roll-call vote (38 in favour, 111 against, 39 abstentions).

— The President then consulted the House on the placing on the agenda of a statement by the Commission
on MON810 genetically modified maize, without the debate being wound up with the tabling of a
motion for a resolution.

Parliament rejected the request by electronic vote (82 in favour, 102 against, 6 abstentions).

— Request from the PSE Group to extend the afternoon debates to 18.30, and hence for Question Time to
the Commission to be held from 18.30 to 20.00.

Parliament agreed to the request.

Wednesday

The President said that 113 amendments had been tabled on the report by Elisa Ferreira on the European
Economic Recovery Plan (A6-0063/2009) (Item 35 of the final draft agenda). He noted that the threshold of
50 amendments laid down in Rule 156 had been exceeded, and consequently asked the relevant committee
to meet to consider them. The debate on that report would be held on Wednesday, as scheduled.
29.9.2009 EN Official Journal of the European Union C 234 E/17

Monday 9 March 2009

— Request from the PPE-DE Group to bring forward to 15.00 the debate on the Oral Questions to the
Council (O-0005/2009) and to the Commission (O-0006/2009) on the state of play of SIS II (Item 80
on the final draft agenda).

Since all the political groups supported that request, the agenda was amended accordingly.

Thursday

— Request from the Verts/ALE Group ALDE Group to wind up the debate on the Oral Question to the
Commission on the 50th anniversary of the Tibetan uprising and the dialogue between the Dalai Lama
and the Chinese Government (O-0012/2009) with the tabling of a motion for a resolution.

The following spoke: Monica Frassoni, on behalf of the Verts/ALE Group, Marco Cappato, on behalf of the
ALDE Group, and Nirj Deva.

Parliament agreed to the request.

The tabling deadlines were established as follows:

— motions for resolution: Tuesday, 10 March 2009 at 10.00

— amendments and joint motions for resolutions: Wednesday, 11 March 2009 at 10.00.

Debate on cases of breaches of human rights, democracy and the rule of law (Rule 115):

— Request from the PSE Group to replace the item ‘Support for the Special Court for Sierra Leone’ (Item 89
on the final draft agenda) with the item ‘Expulsions of aid agencies from Darfur’.

The following spoke: Hannes Swoboda, on behalf of the PSE Group, who moved the request.

Parliament agreed to the request.

*
* *
The order of business was thus established.
