European Parliament’s Last Plenary Session

European Parliament's Last Plenary Session

The European Parliament’s final plenary session in Strasbourg is approaching, with MEPs rushing to secure approvals for outstanding files before the end of the legislative term.

Challenges remain as some votes show signs of potential opposition, particularly concerning the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) simplification package proposed by the European Commission. The outcome of this vote may impact the next Parliament. Another key file on the European Health Data Space (EHDS) also faces scrutiny, with advocacy groups urging MEPs to reconsider the political deal with EU ministers.
