This secret ballot is not a democratic procedure, we need accountability and transparency as to where our money is being spent, and by who. It also deprives each and every citizen of Europe a vote, how democratic is that Mr Schultz....

All EU institutions have a duty to be transparent to citizens. The European Parliament will shoot itself in the foot by holding a secret ballot and lose credibility on the budget question.

Elected representatives should always act openly, votes and
statements should be on the
record. Secret votes should never take place in Democratic
Parliaments.

The European Parliament should be open, transparent and accountable. A secret ballot on such an important matter sends out all the wrong messages.
