The European Parliament returns to Strasbourg in June


The European Parliament preparing to return to Strasbourg for the June Plenary Session, unless the epidemiological picture of coronavirus deteriorates.

As the representative of the European Parliament announced on twitter, President David Sassoli announced to the chairmen of the political groups that, apart from force majeure, The European Parliament will meet in Strasbourg in June.

Due to pandemic, The European Parliament is due to return to its official seat in Strasbourg in February 2020. If the Strasbourg Summit is finally held on June 7-10, it will be in a “hybrid form” (partly via video conference and partly in the semicircle), as in Brussels, according to the European Parliament’s press service.

Last week the Strasbourg semicircle hosted the opening ceremony of the “Future of Europe” Summit.
