Two EP Committees vote against Morocco fisheries deal

Today, 7 November, the Budget and Development Committees in the European Parliament recommended to reject the extension of the EU-Morocco fisheries partnership agreement.

In other words, both Committees followed the proposals by the two rapporteurs, Isabella Lövin in the Development Committee and François Alfonsi in the Budget Committee.

The opinions of these two committees will be forwarded to the Fisheries Committee, which is expected to vote on the agreement 22 or 23 November. The rapporteur in the Fisheries Committee, Carl Haglund (Alde), has criticised the European Commission for their handling of the agreement.
