Letter Roll CALL


Strasbourg, 14th July 2014

Dear Mr. President Martin Schulz,

We are writing to you to raise a question of fundamental importance concerning

the election of the President of the European Commission, which will occur

next Tuesday, 15th of July 2014, during the plenary session in Strasbourg.

Under Article 117, paragraph 2, of the rules of procedures, the vote will be

taken by secret ballot. We firmly believe that the vote concerning the election of

the future President of the European Commission should be open as to ensure

the transparency of our parliamentary proceedings and allow the democratic

control over such election.

In the light of that, we would like to formally request, according to rule 180,

paragraph 2, that such vote will take place by roll call.

Yours sincerely,

David Borrelli
