  • ITALY. New rules to boost gender balance in elections will apply in Italy for the first time in the European elections 2019. These rules, introduced in 2014, say that electoral lists should be composed of male and female candidates in the same proportion (50%). The first two candidates in each list must be one man and one woman (in whichever order). If a voter marks two or three candidates, she/he must include at least one female, otherwise both the second and third preferences would be annulled.
  • The changes at Richer Sounds do not mean the Yorkshire-based entrepreneur, who is currently advising Marks & Spencer on how to change its dysfunctional business culture, is about to retire.He is financing Taxwatch, a non-profit organisation which pores over the opaque finances of multinational companies, and is considering funding a test case against zero-hours contracts.
  • Our borders also need to guarantee fair competition. What power in the world would accept continued trade with those who respect none of their rules? We cannot suffer in silence. We need to reform our competition policy and reshape our trade policy with penalties or a ban in Europe on businesses that compromise our strategic interests and fundamental values such as environmental standards, data protection and fair payment of taxes; and the adoption of European preference in strategic industries and our public procurement, as our American and Chinese competitors do.
  • In Britain, net migration added an estimated 283,000 people to the population in 2018, with the number of people arriving and leaving holding steady over the past few years. In the last decade, around 2.5 million immigrants have bolstered the population.As the above chart shows, since the Brexit referendum in 2016, Britain’s migration patterns have changed. Arrivals from non-EU countries are increasing. And while many EU citizens continue to choose the UK as their new home their numbers have fallen dramatically, dropping to levels not seen for almost a decade.
  • Taiwan Representative Harry Tseng headed up the procession. His message was: “We’re taking to the streets to demonstrate that Taiwan is a democratic, free, law-based and human-rights respecting nation, a like-minded partner for the EU. At the same time we call on the international community to recognise the political pressure that Taiwan operates under, which even now is preventing it from participating in the World Health Assembly.”
