On the occasion of the 138th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union in Geneva, from March 24-28, the President of the External Relations Commission of the Conseil National, José Badia, met the Andorran delegation and the President of the General Council, Vicenç Mateu Zamora, to discuss the state of progress of the EU negotiations.
“More than ever, we remain attentive to the progress of negotiations with the European Union. The recent creation of the Negotiations Monitoring Commission with the European Union allows the National Council to be better involved in the progress of the file.”
The 72-year-old added, “Along this line of thinking, the Assembly reserves the right to request the conduct of impact studies essential to the negotiation strategy.”
Councillor Michèle Dittlota, who is also President of the Association Les amis du Printemps des Arts, was also present in Geneva and involved in the fight against the under-representation of women in politics. “The idea of our new mandate is to positively evolve the main principles of gender equality to level from above the concept of political commitment and therefore the representation of women,” she said.
“There is still a long way to go to better representation of women in politics, it’s is within our walls that we must prepare the future for the next generations!”
