The Bulgarian MEP gave a comment on the withdrawal of the package for "Horizon" radio: "The result is definitely not positive and that is a disappointment. Next week is coming and we will prepare for the vote but I do not expect any better results. It is clear that the majority is categorically against our position".
According to Novakov there is a new vote in the Transport committee coming up on September 24 whether the negotiations on the package shall begin. If the vote is positive, the Council and the Commission will start negotiations after the new EU Commissioner on the Transport – Rovana Plumb – takes up her duties.
