"Ladies and gentlemen, the next item on the agenda is the election for Vice-Presidents of the European Parliament. (The vote took place) (The sitting was suspended at 3.40 p.m. and resumed at 6.05 p.m.) You should have the list of candidates in front of you. I shall read it out to you. Ballot papers are being handed out as we decided, once again, to hold a manual vote, given that there were fourteen candidates for fourteen posts. We shall take advantage of the benefits that electronics can offer later. I have received the following nominations: Mr Joan Colom I Naval, Mr Ingo Friedrich, Mr Renzo Imbeni, Mrs Marie-Noëlle Lienemann, Mr Luis Marinho, Mr David Martin, Mr Gérard Onesta, Mr José Pacheco Pereira, Mr Guido Podestà, Mr James Provan, Mr Alonso José Puerta, Mr Gerhard Schmid, Mr Alejo Vidal-Quadras Roca and Mr Jan Wiebenga. The candidates have informed me that they accept their respective nominations. I would like to draw your attention to something that I mentioned a moment ago, which is that, as the number of candidates does not exceed the number of seats to be filled, I propose that in the first instance, we elect these fourteen candidates to the posts of Vice-President and that we do it unanimously. We will then hold a ballot in order to establish the precedence between the various Vice-Presidents you will have elected in this way. (Applause) The fourteen Vice-Presidents are elected unanimously. I hereby declare the ballot open."@en1
