Normally, the session of the European Parliament was to take place in Strasbourg next week.

Lhe session of the European Parliament scheduled for next week in Strasbourg is canceled due to the too high health risk linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, and will be held in Brussels, the president of this institution said on Tuesday.

“The decision adopted yesterday by the French authorities to classify the entire Bas-Rhin department in the red zone, obliges us to reconsider the trip to Strasbourg”, declared the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, in a press release.

This session, scheduled for September 14 to 17, was to be the first in the Alsatian capital since the start of the pandemic in Europe and the containment measures implemented from March across the EU.

According to the European treaties, the institution has its headquarters in Strasbourg, where twelve plenary sessions of three and a half days a year are held. But the rest of the time, MEPs work in Brussels.

The supporters of the single seat in Brussels regularly denounce the financial and ecological cost of this transhumance of about 2,500 people, and the fact that the immense Strasbourg complex is used only four days a month.

Since the start of the pandemic in March, the sessions have been held mainly by videoconference with a reduced presence of deputies and their teams. The last session of the European Parliament to have taken place in Strasbourg dates back to that of February 10 to 13.

During the September session, the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, is due to make her return to school speech on the state of the EU, some ten months after taking office.
