 FOR (+) This report on the PETI Committee’s annual report for 2017 outlines the importance of the Petitions Committee. It also names the main areas of concern for people throughout the year as environmental issues, fundamental rights and justice issues and internal market issues, with most petitions coming from Spain, Italy, Germany, Romania, the United Kingdom, Greece, Poland and France.
I voted in favour of this report as I believe that the PETI Committee and the process of citizens submitting petitions in order to have EU legislation and policies discussed and changed is very important to maintain public participation in the democratic process.

(none) (+) El informe anual 2017 tiene la intención de ofrecer una visión general del trabajo de la Comisión de Peticiones. El programa de trabajo de la Comisión PETI lo están estableciendo principalmente los ciudadanos y residentes de la UE, ya que ejercen su derecho de petición al Parlamento y comparten sus preocupaciones sobre diversas políticas y legislación de la UE. El informe anual pretende ofrecer una visión precisa y completa del trabajo realizado por la Comisión de Peticiones. Proporciona estadísticas sobre el número de peticiones recibidas, tratadas y cerradas por la comisión, los países interesados ​​y los asuntos planteados. Este informe también cubre otros aspectos, como las relaciones con otras instituciones de la UE y con las autoridades nacionales y regionales. El informe subraya la necesidad de que la Comisión garantice que los Estados miembros realicen análisis precisos y completos del cumplimiento de la legislación de la UE. También enfatiza que la Iniciativa Ciudadana Europea debe ser transparente y efectiva para servir como un instrumento importante para la ciudadanía activa y la participación pública, lamenta que esto no haya sido así en el pasado y que no haya un resultado legislativo tangible de resultados exitosos. Hemos votado a favor.

 FOR (+) Considero que el informe anual de actividades de la Comisión de Peticiones es, en general, positivo y refleja buena parte de la actividad allí realizada. De este texto, quisiera destacar en particular que el Parlamento critica la Comunicación de la Comisión «Derecho de la UE: mejores resultados gracias a una mejor aplicación» (2017/C 18/02), ya que su aplicación provoca que la Comisión esté desatendiendo casos flagrantes de infracción del Derecho de la UE, en base a unas directrices de priorización poco claras. Esta situación provoca un impacto negativo, especialmente en asuntos de Derecho medioambiental y de salud pública. Por otro lado, se pide también a las autoridades estatales que se impliquen en la aplicación de la legislación y de la jurisprudencia europeas, como en el caso de la Directiva 2004/38/CE sobre libre circulación de personas, o sobre la cooperación transfronteriza en asuntos de Derecho de familia. Por todo ello, he votado a favor.

 FOR (+) Em 2017, os oito países mais afetados por petições permaneceram os mesmos (Espanha, Itália, Alemanha, Roménia, Reino Unido, Grécia, Polónia e França).
As questões ambientais foram a principal área de preocupação para os peticionários em 2017 (aumento de 3,8 pontos percentuais), seguidos pelos Direitos Fundamentais e Justiça, que permaneceram mais ou menos os mesmos em pontos percentuais.
O relatório salienta a necessidade de a Comissão assegurar a realização de análises precisas e exaustivas da conformidade com a legislação da UE no que respeita às avaliações ambientais pelos Estados-Membros para a autorização de projetos de infraestruturas.
Refere igualmente que a Iniciativa de Cidadania Europeia deve ser transparente e eficaz, com o intuito de servir como um importante instrumento de cidadania ativa e de participação do público, e lamenta que tal não tenha acontecido no passado.
Votamos a favor.
