EP welcomes accession countries

The European Parliament yesterday agreed to the enlargement of the EU to include Slovakia and nine other candidate countries.

European Socialist and Christian Democrats voted against Slovakia's entry. "You cannot look at it as though we are voting against enlargement. Enlargement must be linked to reform of European institutions, and that hasn't happened," explained Christian Democrat Jean Louis Bourlanges.

Slovakia, Slovenia, Malta, Hungary, and the three Baltic states received the highest support in the vote. Surprisingly, the Czech Republic received the least.
