(Sir Europe – Strasburgo) – The most pressing issue that is being discussed by MEPs on the last day of their July plenary session is the new state of affairs in Egypt, with the army directly opposing president Morsi and citizens taking to the streets of the African country. At the end of the session, MEPs will vote on a political resolution, following yesterday’s long debate which gave rise to many concerns about the respect of democracy and the rule of law, the suspension of the Constitution, the role of citizens and of "street demonstrations", the balanced relationship between state powers, and the controversial role – stressed by several MEPs – of the army. The plenary will also vote on a resolution that has been the object of much work over the past few weeks regarding the Elections of the European Parliament that are to be held from 22 to 25 May 2014. The upcoming vote is on new arrangements that are intended to draw citizens to the polls and reduce abstentionism. The main focus is on political parties which are "actors in the European political sphere" and "contribute to forming European political awareness and to expressing the will of the citizens of the Union".
