The European Conservatives and Reformists Group in the European Parliament (ECR Group) remains sceptical towards the structuring and planned course of the Conference of the Future of Europe. ECR Co-Chairmen Ryszard Legutko (Poland) and Raffaele Fitto (Italy) are unimpressed by the digital platform of the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE). The multilingual platform was designed as a central hub for citizens’ contribution and was launched today during a press conference in the Commission. However, like other smaller Groups from across the spectrum in the European Parliament, the ECR Group only holds an “observer” status in the Conference’s Executive Board and is not fully represented. The ECR Group considers the procedure decided by the Executive Board to be highly questionable from a democratic point of view and harmful in pursuit of a higher functioning European Union.

Today, the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee adopted ECR MEP Angel Dzhambazki’s report with recommendations to the European Commission to strengthen sports’ event organisers’ rights in the digital environment. The report calls on the Commission to enable immediate enforcement of rights for live sports events, including the possibility to issue injunctions requesting the real-time blocking of access to or removal of unauthorised online live sports content. Stakeholders and national authorities are encouraged to cooperate more closely.
