EUobserver / Watchdog website keeps eye on MEP voting records

EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - A new website hopes to open up the political habits of MEPs, exposing voting behaviour, attendance and party allegiances in a bid to bring some EU politics to the European elections in June.

The website Votewatch.eu launched on Monday (11 May) aims to shed some light on the activities of euro-deputies who augment legislation affecting most aspects of EU citizens' lives.

MEP's record by nationality, national political party and the faction they belong to in the EU assembly is now available online

Using information that is publicly available but difficult to find, the website also breaks down each MEP's record by nationality, national political party and the faction they belong to in the EU assembly.

European Policy Centre (EPC) analyst Sara Hagemann, heading the project, stressed that the idea was not to "name and shame" MEPs but to set up a "monitoring tool."
