Dear fellow citizens,
Starting tomorrow, the so-called "mini" plenary week begins in Brussels. From Wednesday there will be some debates, for which I have registered speeches, and on Thursday the corresponding votes. Monday and Tuesday are scheduled for preparations, with meetings of the parliamentary group and the national delegation.
Following the decision of the President of the Parliament, David Sassoli, to make access conditional on the presentation of the European Digital COVID Certificate (EDCC), I would be barred from exercising my mandate. I can't even go to my office - all this without prior debate and sufficient notice, so that it would not even have been possible to get the most necessary things from my office for backup reasons.
I have already explained in my much-noticed speech  why I am not taking part in the play about ever new measures and hurdles on the way to a "new normality".
I have therefore taken legal action and called upon the President of the Parliament to grant me access to the Parliament as well as to my office rooms and not to restrict the exercise of my mandate.
By Monday, 08.11.2021 at 4:00 p.m., I want to be allowed to re-enter the relevant premises.
I will of course keep you informed as to how things will now proceed.
Yours, Christine Anderson, MEP (AfD)
