PS Marie Arena and Marc Tarabella MEPs scramble over EU-Vietnam deal

-

It was the co-president of the Group of the Greens in the European Parliament, Philippe Lamberts, who lit the fuse, on the social network Twitter, Wednesday. After the vote of the European Parliament, gathered in plenary in Strasbourg, the Belgian challenged two of his colleagues and compatriots, Marc Botenga (PTB / Left Unitary European) and the French-speaking socialist Marc Tarabella, who abstained at the time to decide on the trade agreement between the European Union and Vietnam.

The subject divides the left parties in the European Parliament, due to the fact that Vietnam remains a communist dictatorial regime, that it is late in adopting international standards for the protection of workers and that it does not is not a good environmental student.
For some, like the Greens, there were enough reasons to vote against the free trade agreement as well as the investment protection agreement, which supplements it. Another socialist MEP, Marie Arena, also called for a postponement of the vote on this controversial agreement.

On the other hand, others, the majority of the group of socialists and democrats in the European Parliament agreed with the argument that the conclusion of this agreement will lead Vietnam to pull up its social and environmental standards, under pressure from its major European trading partner. A point of view that seems to share Mr. Tarabella.

The replica of Marie Arena was not long in coming. In turn, in response to a post by our colleague from Echo, pointing a gap between the position of the two elected PS, she posted a rather dry message on Twitter towards her party comrade, to whom she accuses of having taken a position contrary to that defended by the PS without knowing exactly what it returns.

If we believe Marie Arena, the position of the PS is clear. This will be confirmed (or not) when the investment protection agreement is submitted to the approval of all the competent parliaments in the member states. Including, in Belgium, the Walloon and Brussels Parliaments, each headed by a socialist minister-president.
