President Metsola led MEPs in a minute of silence in memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, at the opening of the session.

The President extended her condolences to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.

The past few weeks have been very tough, said the President: one of the most significant figures of the 20th century, Mikhail Gorbachev, passed away; climate change continues to gravely affect many, with Pakistan and Bulgaria facing devastating floods, and major wildfires have had a severe impact on France, Portugal, Greece and Spain.

This week marks the moment seventy years ago, on 10 September 1952 in Strasbourg, when Paul-Henri Spaak presided over the opening of the first session of the Common Assembly of the European Coal and Steel Community, a starting point for the European Parliament, President Metsola continued. A number of commemorative events will be held through the next twelve months to mark this anniversary, starting this weekend. An official acknowledgement of this milestone for European democracy will take place during the 21-24 November 2022 plenary session, said the President.
