EU Parliament: Brussels, plenary sitting on Brexit and Venezuela crisis

(Brussels) The commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day (at 3pm) today will mark the beginning of one of the last plenary sittings of the European Parliament in Brussels. A debate will follow on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, in the wake of the vote in the House of Commons which reopened some thorny political issues between London and the 27. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier will open the debate. Then the representatives of each political group will take the floor. At the opening of the session, the Plenary will vote on a proposal to add a debate on Venezuela on Wednesday evening and to adopt an urgent resolution to wrap it up on Thursday. Tomorrow morning, MEPs will exchange views about the future of Europe with Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä (at 10.00). This is the sixteenth in a series of debates between MEPs and EU heads of state or government. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte will address MEPs at the February plenary session in Strasbourg.
