    BANKING UNION

    We will be voting against this dossier because it unreasonably postpones the implementation of the European resolution fund. It is an absurd solution to have European supervision effective immediately and to delay for almost a decade the implementation of crisis resolution instruments.

    SURVEILLANCE OF EXTERNAL SEA BORDERS

    This regulation unambiguously obliges FRONTEX to participate in search and rescue operations at sea. It also seeks to prevent push-backs of potential asylum seekers, but by allowing for rescued persons to be disembarked in a non-EU country against their will, the text on the table fails to do so. This failure to effectively ban the pushing back of asylum seekers makes it impossible for us to support this regulation.
