The President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, will pay a visit to Bucharest on November 21 and will deliver a speech in the plenary sitting of the joint Chambers of Parliament. The visit comes as Romania will take over the rotating Presidency of the EU Council.
The Conference of the Presidents of the European Parliament is a delegation headed by Tajani that will come to Bucharest on November 21, consisting of the leaders of the political groups in the European legislative, the EP Secretary General, representatives of the EP President’s Cabinet, advisers, translators and journalists.
The plenary sitting of the Romanian Parliament where Tajani will deliver a speech will be attended by the presidents of the Constitutional Court, of the Supreme Court, of the Court of Accounts and Ombudsman, Romanian MEPs, as well as the heads of the diplomatic missions in Bucharest.
Antonio Tajani might meet Chamber speaker Liviu Dragnea and Senate speaker Călin Popescu Tăriceanu.
President Klaus Iohannis is not on the list of proposals of guests, according to the Parliament’s internal memos.
Around 50 people take part of the European delegation. The visit is among “the traditional actions before an EU member state takes over the rotating Presidency of the EU Council”, reads one of the memo, which also mentions that “the EP presidents have a specific request to have a dialogue with the academic environment and the civil society”.
