This statement was embraced by some groups, more specifically the ones more on the ideological left side.
Yannick Jadot and Ska Keller, the two big “trade” guns of the Green party, are both supportive of the exclusion of ISDS and the search for an alternative, public settlement system in the future, preferably grounded on a multilateral basis.
He holds the pen and will decide what is in the final text and what is not.
Of course, he will have to take into account a whole bunch of opinions, not only from his colleagues in the INTA committee itself.
Ever since MEPs obtained veto power (after the Lisbon Treaty entered into force in 2009) in trade issues, opinions of parliamentarians matter more than ever.
This means that by now we have a broad look about the different groups’ views on what should and shouldn’t be included, and in what way they’d like to see the negotiations evolving.EPP, ALDE and ECR have 20 out of 41 votes, so whatever way the balance tips, differences will be very small. We’ve seen several issues raised that again clearly show a divide between two political camps.On services, for example, there’s a fundamental disagreement to work either with a positive or a negative list (which means specifying clearly which sectors are included, or excluded, respectively, from being opened up and which has an effect on the ‘locking-in’ of future liberalization).Lange is vying for a positive list, while this was criticized by several members of the EPP group, stating that such a solution is simply not “future-proof” in a rapidly changing world as we live in today.The fact that chief negotiator for the European Commission, Ignacio Bercero Garcia, concluded that TTIP would strive towards a “hybrid” approach (like it does in Ti SA) may therefore not be unsurprising.Jan-Philipp Albrecht, the German Green rapporteur for the civil liberties, justice and home affairs (LIBE) committee, puts in a fierce defense of EU data protection legislation, calling for a “comprehensive and unambiguous horizontal clause that fully exempts EU rules on the protection of personal data from the agreement (…), without any condition that it must be consistent with other parts of the TTIP”, which could be read as: as long as we don’t have a new rulebook on data protection ourselves, we can’t negotiate anything with a third country.The Greens’ amendments go even further, stating that negotiations on data should be “”, which could significantly delay the talks on the e-commerce and telecom chapters.With regards to ISDS, Lange is not likely to change his position, even after Commissioner Malmström came into INTA (on 18 March) explaining her preliminary reforms to the system (including, amongst others, an appeal system and enshrining the right to regulate unequivocally in the agreement).These reforms pleased a lot of members, but failed to impress Lange, who stated that “”, basically downplaying Malmström’s speech as completely unsatisfactory.The most pressing matter would undoubtedly be the inclusion of ISDS, an investor-to-state dispute settlement mechanism that would give foreign investors the right to challenge public policies before an international tribunal composed of private lawyers.Lange’s position is very clear on this, stating in the draft resolution that “”.
